Edibility Question
    #16296833 - 05/28/12 08:11 PM (5 years, 10 months ago)

I found these Boletes near Shasta (PNW) this weekend and wanted to make sure they were edible. I had to keep them in a car for a couple days and the pores have turned a yellowish color, while the stems seem not as firm as they first were when I picked them. Can I cut out the pore area and just eat the cap and stem?

Have any pics of them now? Was there any staining on the stems or the pores?

Pretty sure it is a bolete in the Boletus edulis group.

Thats also what I was thinking. I compared them to some boletus edulis that some other people had found and everything seemed to match up. Now I'm just worried if they may be spoiling.

Those are boletus rex-veris. They just had a porcini in mccloud, which celebrates these tasty fellas. Dry whatever you can't eat fresh. Great find!

Hmm, what tells you that it is rex-veris and not porcini? I decided not to eat them; unfortunately they were occupied by too many maggots...

They are definitely Boletus rex-veris.  And they are definitely Porcini.  And they are fine to eat.  If the pore layer is very thick and soft, you can peel it off.

They are delicious.

The Shroomery had a gathering in McCloud this weekend. It was a blast. We found tons of B. rex-veris.

maggots can be gotten rid of by slicing and drying, i am not really picky. Porcini is a common name of a number of tasty Boletus species, so indeed it is a porcini being a b. rex-veris. They are a top edible if you have the luck to come across some less infested specimens.

This is a paper both describing b. rex-veris and other california Boletus sp. so you can decide for youself, it also describes bolete hunting in the shasta area.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful boletes!
