Yes! Truffles are my specialty, Chanterelles, and Morels (although the Morels elude me most often! ;o)
I took a forging class years ago where we learned to identify wild watercress, onion, among other edibles, and learned you can take the fuzzies off cattails and use them in your pancake batter! I haven't done this before because I want to find them well off a roadside, but understand they have a very "nutty" flavor.
Definitely! I have a many great recipes, some storage/preserving ideas, can identify about 10 of the best mushrooms to eat, and have a few areas to hunt that I am willing to share!
Truffle season will be coming late November/December! Looking forward to gonin' on the hunt with other fungi's!!!
Portland mushroom hunters are awesome! I had a good time! Thank you all for coming!
