Over Thanksgiving weekend I joined a few friends in a remote Washington town for a mushroom foraging hikes. We found a ton of mushrooms, but very few we could safely identify. Among them, chantrelle, boletus, and oyster. Nothing makes a tasty dinner like free, hand-collected forest goodies!
Rummaging in the woods with an expert is a fun way to learn.
Don’t eat anything you can’t safely identify. And wash up afterwords!
