Are these poisonous?

5 posts in this topic

We ate these last night. Should we be concerned? Thought they were oysters, but now I'm not so sure. Thanks for any info.

There are many mushrooms whose edibility has not been established. The pictured mushrooms bear no resemblance to oysters. If they are indeed honey mushrooms, you got lucky.

There are plenty of poisonous mushrooms in Indiana, and some of them are deadly. Please educate yourself and be 100% sure of what you have before eating. No mushroom is so tasty that it's worth risking your life for.

I would get a couple good field guides and try to find someone to help you learn. One guide i would get is, Edible Wild Mushrooms of Illinois and surrounding States. If possible find someone close to you and see if they will help you learn some of the good ones.

Are these honey mushrooms also and are they edible? I have never seen other mushrooms grow in clusters like this so I wanted to verify if there are any "look a likes" that are poisonous.
