Have you ever been out mushroom hunting before? If so, what mushrooms and where?

I've been a shroomer since back in the day, before the commercial hunters started raking up the goodies, and I studied with Freeman Rowe in Eugene eons ago. I easily recognize the most common or striking edibles-- chanterelles, gypsies, the prince, king bolete, hericium (I think that one has a new name) -- , but have gotten quite rusty with the less common ones. And I don't have good hunting grounds this far north in Oregon.

Are you familiar with forging for any other edibles? If so, what and where?!

Huckleberries and salal (Oregon coast); wild asparagus and persimmons (Missouri), thimbleberries and salmonberries (Oregon mountains). Blackberries, if you count that as foraging. And I love stumbling across an abandoned orchard or lone fruit tree.

Absolutely everyone can share something with the group! What can you share? Recipes? Storage Ideas? Knowledge of identifyng? Knowledge of areas to hunt? Using these edible materials? If so, what would you be willing to share?

Can help with identifying the little treasures, and talk about my favorite ways to eat 'em and preserve 'em.
