Georgia, the train ain't done. *EDIT WITH PICS!!*
    #4506636 - 08/07/05 12:42 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Well I hit the tributary steams of the Chattahoochee near my house and I came up with a nice haul today. It's easy to hike the stream up and you save a lot of trouble trying to hike those 'Georgia mountains'... With my backpack all the mushrooms weighed 9 pounds, so I got about 8 pounds chanterelles.
Also, around 40 oyster mushrooms, 4 puffballs, 20 boletus, and 35 red chanterelle mushroom.
STILL NO BLACK TRUMPET CHANTERELLE!! I swear they are impossible to spot cause everywhere on the forest floor is black leaves. Soon as I get some black trumpet mushrooms I'm gonna make stew with all three chanterelle types, orange, red and black. Can't wait.
AND I HOPE MORELS COME THIS FALL!
That is all.

PS- Took me two and a half hours to pick the 8 pounds.
(but I was ultra stoned on some killer hash so I just took my time and enjoyed the woods, even a raw oyster mushroom snack with some wild blackberries.)

Those pics are making me hungry. I found some black trumpets here in Alabama about a week ago. I wasn't even looking for them. What clued me in was some other LBM that was growing nearby. I spotted the trumpets while I was squatting. Once I spotted one trumpet I started seeing them everywhere. Kinda wierd how that happens sometimes.

Those red chanties are nice too. You can't see it in the pic real well, but there is a handful of them in there, as well as the oysters, puffballs, and boletus...
They don't get very big, and they dry down to almost nothing... Pic those red ones and dry them for soups and other meals... they are more spicy.

All the five star restaurants are closed today. Which I am kind of glad about cause it means I'm going to dry a few pounds out instead of selling them all. I already have some dried and I will be stocked for all winter now that I got these.... it's a HUGE pain to clean them... Easy, but slow, I like them perfect, not a spec of dirt..

Thought I would post a pic of the Horn of Plenty I found, an earthstar and a Boletaceae that I am not sure about. All pics came from my phone so the quality isn't great.

I guess you might have been talking about Craterellus cinereus or caeruleofuscus.

I think your right Prisoner but I was just looking through my guide and it also lists a similar looking trumpet with more of a veined looking underside. Craterellus cinereus. Supposedly less common but just as tasty if not better.

Nice! That last pic is Black chanterelles for sure. I've heard them called lots of names on various websites, but that's them. You can eat those.

The black trumpets are supposedly the best tasting chanterelles.

Yes they can be very spicey, and they are very small (the largest one that ive found was ~1 1/2 inch tall, and very old) which is why id like to find a golden chanty patch.

Sorry man, I borrowed my neighbors camera for those pics, which is why I've never posted pics before of my finds, and why I can't post anymore(gave it back already)
If you wanna meet up tomorrow we can go chanty hunting at the Chattahoochee, this rain is going to have them out for sure.
Just PM me if you want to come, I pretty much have places guaranteed to find lots.

Hey flowstone, have you had much luck finding them without maggots and the like? How do you ensure they aren't occupied with bugs when you sell em to the restaurants?

You have to pick them the DAY after the rain, otherwise they get bugs. And a few bugs are easily cleaned out during prep. The price I sell them for(8-12 a pound) leaves them no room to complain about a few bugs or dirt :smile:

Been gettin some good rain today. I'll be revisiting that site soon for more black trumpets. I think I might start looking into selling good edibles. Got any tips to start flowstone?

Tips? Well basically hit google local phone books and five star restaurants and GET BUSY CALLING!
I have sold to five, five star restaurants, some of them twice. Once you have a client list and a circuit of calls to make, you are set. Chanterelles go for 8-15 a pound during the in season depending on quality of mushrooms and surplus on the market. You need good phone skills, and you need lots of patience to dial like 100 numbers before finding a buyer.


Went hunting again today.. got RAINED OUT! Came home with two pounds chanterelles and got them on the fan in just enough time before they turned to mush... ended up selling five pounds to a local restaurant by mu house, and the rest are drying.. I have SOOOO MANY dried chanterelles, and only one bag of dried oysters... I need more oysters, some morels, and more to add to my collection :0
