    Chanty time

    Just a quick photo of a crop of chanterelle mushrooms that I collected on 7/19 (same foray as the indigo milkcap). All washed up and ready for the dehydrator! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KD0FUAQkM07NK90f3FvACNjNfgSLpifg Bruce

    Lactarius indigo

    Nice to know. I found some earlier and have been wanting to try them.
  6. I tried a new mushroom that I found in the woods today -- Lactarius indigo. This is a very distinctive, funnel-shaped mycorrhizal mushroom that "bleeds blue" when cut. Unfortunately, after a 6-minute saute', it comes out the other side looking more aqua than blue. Reminds me of an old George Carlin schtick ("There is no blue food"). The flavor isn't strong, but kinda nutty...far better than I expected from the culinary descriptions I've encountered in books. Links to photos: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_1c6MVzR2vodP2MjdPVEwK53beuIh4p0 https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UCx5_WjRtpSlSL9ifhNMJRJjZGbZStme https://drive.google.com/open?id=18oTIGyU_9wUZZyKy5cqPvCxRRCl9foPg Hopefully the next message you get from me won't be my obituary. :-) Bruce

    Mccormick creek foray

    For some reason, the notification link in gmail brings me to the forum in a different layout and in that layout, the home link doesn't have the scheduled events, but has a drop down menu, and in that menu, it does have the "calendar" which doesn't have any events saved on it. However, when I went directly to the website from my mobile browser, the schedule appears on the actual home page. This may be a gmail/ Google issue.

    Yeah, Steve gets busy, and all dates are considered soft until it opens for registration. It does make it hard to plan. I'm planning on the walk tomorrow at the Indiana dunes, which hasn't opened yet with a time frame and meeting location.

    The one on the home page. They never updated the picture on it but the calander was. So far they dont have the registration open for it, maybe they will in the next couple days. I will also text steve tomorrow and make sure its still going on.

    Is the calendar your speaking of on a Facebook page? I've checked the calendar on this site and there's nothing.

    It's on the HMS calendar or schedule of events. I plan to attend that and brown county the day before. I've hunted shades with both of you last year. Hope to see you both again.

    Mccormick creek foray

    I didn't even know there was one. It's not on the forum calendar and I don't have crackbook:-/, so I don't even know where McCormick creek is or what time

    If you have facebook, steve can be contacted there also.

    What is this?

    Looks like an earth ball. Not edible

    What is this?

    Awesome. Thanks. The only wild mushrooms I’ve eaten is morels, they are the only ones I know for sure.
  24. Chris Christensen

    What is this?

    I'm pretty sure that you dug up a non edible variety of a truffle. Tuber canaliculatum is the edible Michigan truffle that we assume exists in Indiana but not documented yet. Google for more information.
  25. Hoosierfunguy

    What is this?

    It looks to be a Purple spore puffball. They are probably the only puffball i enjoy eating with a really rich mushroom flavor. But you never want to eat any puffballs that don't have solid white flesh. There's also a toxic look alike called a pigskin poison puffball. The outer layer looks a little different, but they are small in size and similar in color. When in doubt, throw it out.

    What is this?

    Found these underground while digging my potatoes.

    Steve Russell is the guy. I'm sure it will be resolved. Possibly holiday weekend is a factor. You can try again or keep posting. He or other moderators will contact you.

    Order from Store

    Hello: A month ago I ordered your 3 bottle reagent Identification Kit and paid for it through Pay Pal. I never received the kit. I wrote an email to "steve" with the address given on the site, but I received no answer from him either. Who do I contact now? Linda Scribner
