Oysters, chanterelles, trumpets, Georgia Morels
    #4488362 - 08/03/05 03:33 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hit the hills today, there was a mist still settled over the river rock bed, up steep stone bridges, along a path near the water.
I've located one pound Oyster mushrooms, in three separate patches. this fungus can fruit largely and tastes good deep fried or on pizza! I heard it has anti cholesterol too?
No camera, but here is what wild oysters look like:



cultivated oysters:



Chanterelles, what can I say, I love them.
Here is what they look like wild in my area.

Sometimes they have smooth gills too.

Also, I was shown some in a kitchen that were shipped fresh from Oregon, they were small, and looked like this:



I want to find the famous Black trumpets. They look like this


Can anyone tell me where this mushroom most resides in Georgia and where to look for it , and if it tastes good.
:supershroom:


Also, what are the local reports for Morel finds in North Georgia.. is it feasible? This is the mushroom I seek the most, and I won't buy them although I want to taste badly! I heard they are pretty rare here in Georgia can anyone tell me when the season is? The mushroom club of Georgia website has NO information on morels.

morels generally fruit only in the spring, when it's first warming up after the winter. they can fruit later in the year at high elevations, and have also been reported in cali out of season, but it's very rare to find them any other time of year.

never found black trumpets, so I dunno about those.

flowstone morels also grow in the same type of environment as the chants, but like DH said they typically only grow in the spring. I was shown a spot where they tend to be so im definately gonna look next year.

you mean like this?
I did a little checking and they lack trumpets right behind my house, well about
300 yards behind it but still in my back yard, you're welcome to go wandering
around and find some if you wish

DH- Thanks

Phishhead- We gotta hunt morels in the spring if you are still around town. I heard they are like a taste of heaven.. I really want to find and eat them.


Prisoner#1-Those are most certainly black trumpets!!! Nice pic. I hope you will pick a few and try them for me... Apparently I hear they are more spicy than orange chanterelles, but still a culinary masterpiece. I will certainly look around if I ever make it up that way.

Sure !!!
I'll send you some oysters and chanterelles dried if you want too.
Hopefully we will get some rain and you will be able to pick some of them. Try to get more pictures if you can too, they are awesome.

Cool stuff, if you are anxious to try some morels, you can usually find suppliers that sell them dried. Wont be the same as having a nice fresh picked one though.

^^ You can't send active fruit bodies through the mail, but you can send the spores of an active mushroom due to the fact that the spores contain no active substances.

I've only had morels once, fresh picked, lightly fried and served with A1 sauce, it actually had a bit of a meaty texture and with the A1 I felt like I was eating a very chewy soft steak.

Also try morels.com. There is a discussion board for Georgia, which should be useful next season: http://www.morels.com/georgia/

Georgia is about as far south as morels get in the US, but it sounds like their are a lot of them in season.
