I went mushroom hunting with the BF this past weekend for our first time. A couple months ago we joined the Oregon Mycological Society, and they’re so great. I learn a lot at the monthly meetings and I can’t wait to learn more!
I wrote a post for the Plantwise blog about how to hunt for mushrooms here in Portland. It’s really easy, but don’t expect anyone to tell you exactly where to go! I’m so proud of that huge morel (pictured) that we found, and it was deeelicious later that night (soaked in half-and-half, stuffed with chopped onion, walnuts, whatever cheese you may have, breadcrumbs and spices, then baked for about a half hour).
I can’t wait til the next time we both have a morning off and can go mushroom hunting again.
