Vermont Gym Find
    #3140821 - 09/15/04 10:04 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Earlier today, I found my first Big Laughing Gyms. These suckers were growing on a log in a mixed forest. There is no doubt in my mind they are Gyms: slight veil remnant, the way the gills are attached to the stem, rust-brown spores, etc. I did a small taste test, and they are indeed VERY bitter. I left a few specimens on the log that seemed a little too rotten to even make a tea out of, but I think these will be okay. I'm drying them in front of a fan, then I'll make tea or put them in some soup when I'm ready to try them.

I also found many black trumpets (my favorite), boletes, suillus, and chanterelles, these only show a few:

Edit: Gym dry weight = 10.4 g
