Does anyone on CM go mushrooming? And what kind do you hunt?

I love getting in the woods and hunt morels.

  • Years and years ago I went mushrooming with a friend. We got lots and lots of Morels (or at least that what he said they were).

  • I don't go. Didn't you see that episode of ER where the lady hunted mushrooms and found some and ate them and DIED? It was from some weird bacteria or something in them. That would be just my luck. lol

  • Yeah, I'm too scared. If you eat the wrong kind, and it's hard tell which ones are the right ones, you can go into acute liver failure and die. I'm too chicken.

  • I'm allergic, but my SIL's sister takes her kids out and they find either morels or truffels (not sure which) - her little 2yo finds more than anyone else.

  • No. I'd also be afraid of getting the wrong kind

  • I've gotten Chicken of the Woods before, but this year I'm buying the logs with the spores in them as well as those new bags that you just cut and water and i'm growing my own.
