Chicken of the forest? AKA Laetiporius suphureus

I can't think of what it's called, but it's one of the only 3 mushrooms I'll pick and eat myself. (morels and puffballs being the other 2)

I remembered, it's been bugging me for days - ever since you posted -
As soon as I admitted that I couldn't remember and posted my defeat, I remembered.

Is that knife a cold steel master hunter?

2006-11-29, 10:53
Oyster!!!! Yay!!!!

Hmmm, you hillbillies got oysters growing in trees down there? Ours stick to the tideflats out here... :biggrin:

2006-11-29, 13:31
Oyster. Lack of scale had me scratching my head, but I realized that there's really only one that looks like that.

I do hope that you ate it with brown rice. :)

Mushroom this:

I'm not going to give away your mushroom question (let them guess), but I will tell them it's kind of a fancy high falutin' name.

Mushroom this:

Those aren't chantrelles(sp?) are they?

2006-11-30, 23:28
You got it - unless I was wrong too. And I don't think so.

Yup, I get 5 to 20 gallons a year out of my favorite elk haunts, but this year has been poor. Too much rain / too cool. November rain totalled 19.16inches this month in my home town.... They don't call it the rain forest for being dry... Elk camp sucked. One week of constant heavy downpours, mixed with wind, and then heavier rain. In a tent, nonetheless.

Anyway, I trim and clean the shrooms with water, table dry for a day, then sautee' about half way done in a speck of butter, pepper, and finish with a dash of creme sherry, yank from the heat, cool and then bag and freeze. Later, you just toss in a thawed pack next to your bear, deer or elk steak and viola' yum! :eating: :eating: :eating: :eating: :eating:

We found a mushroom hiking Seneca Creek that appeared to be a Chantrelle.

If I can dig up the picture I want you to check it out and see if it appears to be one. They are not common around here and since you have good familiarity with them I'm hoping you can tell me with relative certainty whether it is.:adore:

2006-12-01, 22:33
OK, let her rip. We have been harvesting two varieties out here forever....

2006-12-01, 23:15
Found it.

a couple views.

First off, I am going to say this for the sake of safety....but as can be seen in photo number two, you really need to be careful when swinging your hammer, move your thumb out of the way next time....:biggrin:

Those appear to be exactly what we are picking out here, yellow chantrelles. The rule is gills which do not terminate at the stalk like most cap style mushrooms, gills which travel down the stalk a ways...

Most chantrelles do not have a uniform shape from one to the next...we get alot which grow against rotten woody mass on the forest floor, and will not be as uniformly shaped as the one you depict. They are also very often pushing heavy soils, leaves, and forest duff off the floor which causes them to have weird shapes, and making locating a bit tricky... As seen in my attachment (I need to start posting my pics on the web, your photos look way cooler...) our chantrelles often are very irregular in shape. We also have white chantrelles out here, which can grow quite large.

Remember, gills down the stalk or=puke:

Well very cool. Chantrelle. That was my first impression when my buddy Dave picket that (his hammer injury- I keep losing my toenails to goats jumping off them milkstand on my feet though:boring: )

That was picked 7/28. I'll have to start researching them now and actually try to keep my eye out for them.

2007-06-28, 13:21
If the gills run to where the mushroom is fastened to the tree, they are oyster mushrooms. They are among the failsafe three: morels, oyster, and puffballs. If the gills terminate in a stem, they are not oysters.

Hollowdweller, where are you man?
