Hunting for Mushrooms

Wild Lobster Mushrooms and Chanterelles

It is the time of year for fall mushrooms! I love hunting for chanterelles, hedgehogs, matsutake, bear's head coral, boletes or whatever I can find! Here is a painting I did a few years ago. It reminds me of searching for chanterelles in the vine maple.

Wild mushrooms are a little more difficult to cook; the high water content plus butter can turn them into slime! Here are some cooking methods and tips for wild mushrooms.

For information on cooking wild mushrooms please see my Squidoo article.

I was also hunting for mushrooms on Etsy but not a single matsutake found! I love the aroma of the piney cinnamon; totally reminds me of fall!
