Re: Favorite (non-psychedelic) mushrooms to eat?

Oh and a fantastic one, lobster mushroom, which isn't really a mushroom anymore because it has been infected by a parasitic fungus.

But it has this amazing saffron like color and flavor. Super good. Sometimes you see them alongside regular mushrooms at farmers markets.

It will be foraged mushroom season very soon although Minnesota will be delayed with the storms of late. Morel, porcini, and chanterelle are the biggies. I had a giant morel simply sauteed last year that tasted exactly like a pan seared smash burger, they are incredible. Hawk wings will be coming so...
