    Mmmmm. A little bit of fresh garlic cooked in butter with a splash of balsamic vinegar, sauteed over a medium heat until fully cooked. Yum,yum, I'm going hunting!!!

    Can u help me identify this species

    It's always best to be safe. "When in doubt throw it out" after taking notes, if course...lol. Some things to note Gills color, size, style Pores, shape, density, color Bruising coloration of the cap, stalk, gills, flesh... Cap, shape, color, texture, various other, characteristics Spore print Stalk, Mycelium Habitat, trees, plants, soil, topography, etc. Once you've certainly and positively IDed some choice edibles, you open up a whole new level of culinary possibilities. Just a personal lesson : If there's a poisonous look alike that has to be differentiated by looking at the spores under a microscope to determine their shape, size and count, it's not worth the risk of being ill. Thankfully, most choice edibles can be positively IDed with the naked eye.

    Can u help me identify this species

    They look like immature coral mushrooms. Look up Clavulina cristata and be sure of a positive ID if you plan to sample them

    One simple test is the flesh. If thw inside flesh is yellowish orange, it's a Jack. If the flesh is white, it's a chanterelle.

    I hope they are as there is probably a 100 or so those were the biggest the rest just bloomed. I will check back in a couple days n see if the false gills begin to form. I thought maybe they could be false chanterelles also.

    They are growing under a pair of mature beech trees in a woods with a lot of oaks n shagbark hickory. Kind of a damp woods with little low spots in it.

    Not positive but they look more like young chanterells. Do you have any pics of where they were growing. If not can you describe where they were growing

    Hens n chickens

    Chickens have been fruiting since at least late may and should continue throughout the summer. Hens usually don't come out until September/ October.

    Hens n chickens

    I am an avid morel hunter but never have hunted hens n chickens. So i am just not sure how early is too early for the hens n chcikens to come up for the first time in summer. Does anyone think these rains last couple days will make it happen?
