    Which state do you live in? I never find chanterelles like those. The only chanterelles I find are the very small bright orange cinabon's.....nice find!

    I picked a bag of chanterelles last weekend. First time I've harvested them and they were delicious. The area I found them in was close to a road but steep. The payoff was more than worth the time and effort. I've hunted morels for years and seldom had as many mushrooms per steps as I did with the chanterelles.

    I know the feeling. I made a couple trips taking pictures and bringing home samples before deciding to pick a few for dinner. They were delicious, but the wife was still too concerned to eat more than one.

    Chanterelles are one of the easier species to ID. Not the easiest but relatively simple once you know the traits you're looking for.

    Looks like a good year for chinkapin. Only a few were ripe yesterday but that will change over the next few weeks.

    Has anyone used Japanese Knotweed ?? Apparently leaves and roots [rhizoms] are edible .KW is in the buckwheat familly so the honey has an [excellent ] mild buckwheat flavor. Now along the Upper Delaware River the plant is in HUGE numbers and in full bloom !

    Not for food,, yet, but the root tea for Lyme. Use for Lyme treatment is a long process, but works!:thumbup:

    Put up a batch of black walnuts to dry today. They are quite the chore. Anyone got any tips? Thanks.
