  1. Just to let you know there are ads from the gut doctor with pictures of worms. Not appetizing to see when browsing your site.

  2. Hi – (I’m Aloe Veritas) Thanks so much for all your good information about mushrooms — and for free. I also just received an ad from Mother Earth News for their mushroom guide, which of course is not free. But you’ve got me interested now in trying to forage mushrooms. I will be very careful with it, but I think it sounds like fun!

  3. I wish that I lived in mushroom country! Instead, we have to buy them at the store. The recipes look good; I just wish I could eat dairy….

  4. Very nice – I love all the details!

    You’re have quite an extensive knowledge. How long did it take you to learn all of this? Did you take any classes?

    I love chanterelles especially, though I’m afraid the forests around here (I’m in the suburbs) don’t support them..

  5. Crikey ! – where do YOU live ? There’s no kind of mushroom joy growing in Oz – not that I’ve ever heard of. Lucky you. 🙂

  6. I live in central Texas with farm country all around us. Also very near the confluence of two rivers. Especially with all the wet rainy weather we’ve had, I would think this would be a great area to find mushrooms.
    If I find any that look interesting I will take a picture with the smart phone and send it in or post it here (I think I can, we’ll see…)

  7. Macrolepiota procera, ‘mazza di tamburo’, they do in Italy to, in the north. Or used to. And ‘Schnizelled’ it as well – after concentrating flavor (often hung for a day or two in a dry place with a warm breeze, then breaded and fried.)
