    Default Hunting for mushrooms

    Hunting for mushrooms is such a romantic concept to me but I don't think I would ever eat the mushrooms I picked.

    Yes, I think about mushroom foraging: free food! But would never do it. I would be afraid of poisoning myself, first. And I can't make myself like them.
    You seek a great fortune, you three who are now in chains. You will find a fortune, though it will not be the one you seek.
    But first you must travel a long and difficult road, a road fraught with peril.
    You shall see things, wonderful to tell. You shall see a... cow... on the roof of a cotton house. And, oh, so many startlements.
    I cannot tell you how long this road shall be, but fear not the ob-stacles in your path, for fate has vouchsafed your reward.
    Though the road may wind, yea, your hearts grow weary, still shall ye follow them, even unto your salvation
    .

    My family went mushroom hunting when I was a child. It stopped with Chernobyl.

    I used to kick the ones that grew in my yard.

    I didn't exactly "eat" the other kind, we boiled them in water on the stove and drank the "juice" mixed with Kool-Aid. Same effect, but you had to gather a lot of them. And we did do our own gathering, which was both fun and scary.

    I ate tons and tons of wild shroomz when I was a kid. I'm afraid it wasn't terribly romantic. Just free food. Pretty good battered and fried though.

    There's a pine forest a few hours drive away from me that has edible mushrooms. The staff at the visitor centre will even look over your mushrooms to check if they're poisonous, but I always forget it exists til the season's over.

    gross. i like dehydrated shrooms better, the taste goes away quicker than with a juice, but then again i never used kool-aid to cut it with.

    Um, mushrooms and trees are a symbiotic relationships; they give and receive nutrients to each other...I hope you're kinder to them now.

    no

    the kind that grow in yards are technically counted as weeds and are unsightly. I would still rip them out of my yard (if I had one) and toss them out

    edit: also because they are toxic to humans and I have friends with small children who don't need to be eating yard shrooms and getting sick

    This pic is from last year's mushroom hunting trip. These are king boletes and they taste great in soups or as part of stir-fries. This year I've missed most of the meets but those who've attended said that it wasn't a good year and they barely found anything, though the hike is usually just as interesting.


    (p.s. don't tell americans that eastern europeans r in their base, raiding their mushroom supplies...)

    I've been to lawns in the northeast (Colorado/Nebraska) that had little mushrooms growing on them. I really liked that. I could pick them and pull them apart, or just pat them on the head. Rubbery plants.

    After we moved to our house, like within a week, there was a huge thunderstorm and a tree in our backyard was struck by lightning and died. A couple of years afterward, where the roots of the tree had been, we had tons of morel mushrooms. They came up every year for three years, and then never came back. We had tons of them and I ate some but gave many away. I have never actually hunted for them. I have family who hunt for wild asparagus. That sounds like more fun to me.

    When I saw "mushrooms" in the title I also initially assumed this was going to be about drugs.

    Was kind of disappointed when it wasn't about magic mushrooms, but I just spent the day talking drugs with people. Apparently I'm the drug guy now.

    Fuck, mushrooms aren't that dangerous. It's a popular past time here and poisonings never get in the news. And believe me, if the the tabloids could make it "newsworthy" they would.

    Psychoactive mushrooms are among the most least reliable to have an effect but damn they are nice. I love candy flipping. It's when you eat shrooms and MDMA/extacy. Enter the fucking Fairytale world.
    Mushrooms are also good for people who haven't yet tried psychedelics. Acid can be really stressful due to it's more colder and longer effect. One can easily increase the chances of any psychedelic working by smoking some pot about half hours after the ingestion.

    Remember set and setting, kids.

    I've heard sour coke bottle lollies work well. I think the strains in Australia must be stronger, they're pretty popular here.

    I absolutely love mushrooms. Mushroom stroganoff is one of my favourite dishes. I'm not hardcore though, wild mushrooms are good but like with smelly cheeses I have to have a mild version or a small portion ratio of a stronger breed.

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    A friend of mine told me that I was the person who he thought would be willing to cook up and eat these big mushrooms that grow in his yard while everyone else just outright refuses. I told him I would do it if I could verify with certainty that they're not toxic. That was a few years ago and it's never come up again.

    Once went with my grandpa. Well actually not mushroom hunting, but just walking around in the forest when we stumbled over some. And then we took them with us and he fried them at home. My grandpa also used to grow mushrooms in a box, champignons I think.
