The smuts and the little spots on leaves and the tiny little dots on twigs i’m talking about fleshy mushrooms that you see with your eyes without Buy blue meanies .
A microscope probably i probably have seen another and never even thought about finding .
- My diet identifying all those little ones and a lot of the polyphorus i never really bother doing it but when you hunt for the table make sure you leave a few
- There to score and i’d say as soon as they start opening up they’re putting out spores this is the stuff that they tell you you’re supposed to do and if
- You’re picking for the table make sure you clean your mushroom as much as you can before you put it in your basket because there’s nothing
- worse than coming home and have having a pile of dirt and pine needles on top of the pores and or the gills in your mushroom because you just threw them in a jungle i
Know people who are very careful to put their stuff in with the cap up so that they don’t get stuck in the process it’s nice to just be as clean as you can be on the way out of the woods if you’re giving permission to pick on someone’s land show .
Them what’s going on there they’ll probably invite you back once in a while you come across with some of those new people who say get off my way let’s see so we find morels in the spring one of the earliest mushrooms.
we find and maybe find false morels even earlier than that sometimes which are uh semi somewhat poisonous.
I know that uh they produce something called monomethylhydrazine which is synthesized to make rocket fuel so if you have a pot on those and you open it up and you and you take a whiff of it might
Knock you out and if you cook them wrong or don’t cook them long enough and get all that gyromicron out of them um then you you’d get sick and we could give you cancer over time people i’ve met .
From germany said oh yeah we could come in in germany and we hang them out on in the sun on them on a thread you know so that they can dry and get rid of all that stuff but it can really be achievable poison from what.
I understand so i haven’t tried it this is the beginning of the spring polypore and it’ll end up looking like this and when they’re very young although they’d say any time you open them up and smell them they smell like uh watermelon right so people like to pickle them .
