  5. Thanks The response! I assume that's down south?

    Greetings everyone. Sorry for finalizing the information late. We will meet at the Nature Center and then find a trail from there. 1pm to 3 pm local time. Call Steve at 765-532-4227 if you have any questions.
  7. Last week
  8. Looks like it is one of the Amanita mushrooms not sure of the exact one.
  9. Laetiporus Sulphureus is realy common around here also. Taste the same and can be found in large numbers sometimes.
  10. Not sure about your area but they are up in vermillion county. Picked 2 pounds friday
  11. Earlier
  12. This guy popped up over night and you can see the dirt it pushed up out of the way. We were camping around Misssissinewa Lake . Look familiar to anyone ?
  13. Howdy all, just found the sight trying to find chantrelle info in Indiana. Never looked for them but heard their easy. I just can't find definitive info when they show up. I live near Wabash/fort Wayne. No shortage of rain Thanks for any help!
  14. After a lot of research thats the same conclusion I came to. Laetiporus Cincinnatus. It tastes great. I really have never had anything like it. I will always keep an eye out for these from now on.
  15. It does appear to be chicken of the woods. Being white on the uderside i think it is laetiporus Cincinnatus
  16. Hello, I'm new to the site and request some ID help. I have always hunted Morels but i just found this guy yesterday and am 90% sure it is chicken of the woods. The underside is white and smooth. no gills. Anyone agree with me? I'm looking forward to trying it. Thanks, Drew
  17. Glad you liked it
  18. Mushroom dinner last night. As recommended, we batter-dipped and fried some of the Meripilus along with a Laetiporus that I collected on the same foray. As expected, several pieces were a little chewy...but the flavor was good. I would definitely eat it again.
  19. Thanks much, we will try that ASAP!
  20. I have eaten them when young and they are good. I deep fried them in drakes batter mix after cutting it into roughly 1 inch squares. To check them to see if they are tender enough to use i cut them with a plasic butter knife, if it doesnt cut it easily then its to old.
  21. Whoa
  22. I thought honey mushrooms grew on wood.
  23. Very tasty...hard to find in quantity.
  24. Sparassis crispa
  25. Russula emetica
  26. I found a Meripilus giganteus yesterday (see photo) but have never eaten one. If anyone has a good recipe please advise. I'm told they can be rather stringy but this one looks young and is [hopefully] relatively tender.
  27. Black trumpet
  28. When I find oysters - and they grow everywhere in Indiana throughout the summer and even into December some years - I will take some of the ones that are too far gone to cook up and simply place them on a downed tulip tree - especially at a split or where bark is ripped. Or the tops of tulip stumps. The white spores can easily be seen under the mushroom placed on the log. It's best to use recently dead tulip - though wait 3 or so months before inoculating in this way. I live south of Indy in the woods, so I have great access. It takes a year or maybe 2 - but generally the following season - before you will see oysters on the tree you inoculated. Regular rains help. You can water it if there is a dry spell and a water source is near. Also helps if the wood is shaded.
