Have you ever been mushroom hunting?
If you haven't, you should!!
It is a fun adventure to go on.
We just happened upon a group of people in the mountains
while camping a few years ago that were
digging up mushrooms.
My hubby stopped and chatted with a couple about
all the ends and outs of hunting mushrooms.
I guess it's quite the sport!!
They told us which ones were safe to
eat and what to look for.
So...off we went...
These mushrooms above with the reddish brown tops
are a safe and yummy one to eat.
Kinda like a button mushroom.
These ones are pretty, but not edible!
Here's my youngest, using a knife
to pop one out of the ground.
Mushrooms live in a cool, damp and dark climate.
After all they are a fungus!
We ended up finding a huge
pillowcase full of mushrooms!
Once we got home, we sliced and dehydrated some of them
and the others we sauteed and enjoyed!!
My little monkey was so proud
of the mushroom he found!
And some of the mushrooms were quite large!
What a fun day in the woods!
Do you live close to any mountains?
If you've never mushroom hunted
before I recommend you go and purchase
a mushroom identifying book.
The one we purchased showed
which ones are safe to eat
and what they look like.
I know we compared each
mushroom before we plucked it out of the ground.
wouldn't want to make anyone sick!
Happy Hunting Friends...
Thanks so much for stopping by,
