Some Chantrelles and A. muscaria (Faster loading)
    #1165693 - 12/23/02 07:55 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Went on a hike today, finally found my Cantharellus cibarius. I have literally been looking for them for months. It finally got cold enough or something to spring up.

Does anyone know if wild boars eat chantrelles? On the past few hikes, we've been noticing a lot of rootings from the boars, boar shit, and a few peices of mushroom around the area.

I was a dumbass and didn't take any pictures of htem actually above ground. I was a little too excited. We got 4 very nice specimens, and 2 older buggy ones that I tried to clean, but was just too dirty and ugly!

Found them growing under some oak trees and second growth covering them.





Here are the Amanita's. We found about 10 in a 30 foot radius. Like the other patches, they are always RIGHT along the side of a busy road.

Here's one with all its warts fallen :frown: Looks like a lolly-pop!


And a youngin' just peering out into the new world!! :laugh:


Here we have a purple mushroom with a very interesting cobwebby rusty brown veil.

The last one is probably poisonous Cortinarius traganus. Cobwebby veil and rusty brown spores point right to Cortinarius. The smell is very important to make exact ID in this genus.

In reply to:

I'm almost sure they do. Many animals (hogs, deer, squirrels) are mad for mushrooms.

Great pics BTW!

Great photos (again).

Keep track of where you find your chanterelles. They will come up in the same areas again year after year. Also, the places you found some now may produce more as your season progresses.

The little Mycena in the second photo is pretty cool.

Muscarias are just plain photogenic.

The purplish mushroom is a Cortinarius, from subgenus Sericeocybe. The cobwebby veil is called a "cortina", which is where the genus name comes from. As zeronio mentioned, the smell is important for this group of mushrooms. None of the Sericeocybes are known to be poisonous, but none of them are known for being worth eating either. Some of the other Cortinarius species (around C. orellanus and C. gentilis) are deadly poisonous, so they should be avoided for eating. Still, they are often large, brightly colored, and conspicuous, and they are important for the health of the forests.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks everyone for the replies ! :smile:

So, my question is to you (mr mushrooms)
What is your favorite chantrelle recipie?

I tried putting them into a stirfry, last night. I used butter and LOTS of garlic, and sauteed them in that and some red onion. Then added tofu, and vegtables. I added curry powder, and put over brown rice. It was OK, but, the chantrelles could have used a better recipie to bring out the flavor.

Zerionio, yeah, we were getting pissed off at all the animals (well not really MAD, but...) who were eating the mushrooms... I saw a few squirrels run off into their trees with some mushrooms...its pretty funny.  We actually had to find these mushrooms near the side of a road because the cars would scare them off, and they wouldnt eat them. It worked!

ToxicMan, great to you see you around again. I missed your dedication and knowlage in the forum. Thanks for the ID. I remember someone stating something about the brown cobwebby veil, or "cortina" a while ago, and remembered that the name of the genus sounded like "cortina"...pretty funny.

I'll be sure to check out that patch time and time again through the winter. We checked everywhere around that area, looking for any uplifts in the humus, but, there was just nothing else...Im guessing that they just started to produce their fruits recently, that or the boars have been eating them!

Take care everyone, have a merry christmas! :smile:

That sounds good! :smile: Too bad my girlfriend is a vegan...lol !! I might have to try that out when she's not looking.

So I am drying the chantrelles out, is that a good idea if Im not planning on using them this week? I just sliced them up, then set them on a high powered fan for about a day, they are getting kinda crispy around the edges. Im going to use a disessant (sp) chamber to dry the fruits to a crisp. A food dehydrator would have been nice heh.

Seeing this thread bumped up I thought I'd chime in with a farily recent incident involving chanterelles.

It seems that we recently had an elderly couple who were poisoned from eating them. We were able to obtain specimens of what they ate, and they were definitely chanterelles. They had been preserved by freezing the raw mushrooms in a ziploc bag. When thawed they had developed a somewhat bitter flavor, but they were eaten anyway. The poisoning was not severe, but they had a long evening of vomiting and diarrhea.

I guess the moral of that story is that, if you intend to freeze your chanterelles (or any mushrooms), make sure you cook them first. Also, regardless of how you preserve mushrooms (or any food), don't just assume that they're still good - check and make sure.

Yeah I know your stuff was back at Xmas time, but I'm tossing this in for future reference for everybody.

Happy mushrooming, everybody!

Are you sure they weren't false chanterelles (Hygrophoropsis Aurantiaca) or another look alike? I don't recall every hearing of poisoning and/or flavor loss from chanterelles, but I know from experience freezing can cause mushrooms to spoil (it's happened to me on a few occasions with psilocybes).

The person who did the identification was Marilyn Shaw (you probably don't know her), but she definitely qualifies as an expert. She is one of the authors of the CRC Handbook of Mushroom Poisoning, and I would trust my life to an identification she made. She is the sort who, if she were unsure, would not make a definite statement on an identification. So if she tells me she personally identified them then I will take her word for it. I believe MrMushrooms has also met her and can verify that she does have good mushroom identification skills.

We do have Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca here, but it is not very common, and not very hard to distinguish from chanterelles.

Having said all that, of course we didn't see the mushrooms which were actually eaten. But these people knew how to tell chanterelles from false chanterelles, so we are pretty sure that true chanterelles were the culprit in this case. Or, more accurately, we believe that the method of preservation was the cause of the poisoning.

any mushroom, when frozen fresh can spoil, and for sure make you sick as a dog......alwaysa thoroughly cook any fresh ones you are wanting to freeze, or make sure to dry them.....
