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

Oh yes! I've foraged all over the southeast for myself and in trade for a friend's restaurant in Athens, GA. I know about morels, chanterelles (cibarius, lateritius, cinnabar, persicinus), black trumpets, chicken of the woods (cincinnatus mostly), oysters, angel wings. I've only found one Boletus edulis when I was here last year, but would love to find more.

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

Yes! I know the usual berries- raspberry, wild strawberry, indian strawberry, black berry, blue berry, thimbleberry, huckleberry also the more local salmon berry, twisted stalk, salal. Have found many of these in my brief time in Oregon. Great oxalis in these parts, have enjoyed snacking on young Oregon grape leaves, and adding hemlock, and fir tips to water. Really enjoy nettles and lambsquarters, claytonia (miner's lettuce), chickweed, etc. There are some more out there, but that's a good bit of them!

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?

I typically share most everything I know to anyone who is passionate about foraging and respectful of the environment they forage in.

Introduction

Forager from Georgia, recently moved to beautiful Portland, Oregon. Ready to get ramped up on foraging for wild edibles specific to the PNW, and share whatever knowledge I have!
