I ate wild mushrooms and lived to blog about it!
Nature called me out to behind the garden and there suddenly I noticed
WILD OYSTER MUSHROOMS!
I double checked the Interweb to be sure, but there are no poisonous lookalikes on this continent so I went ahead and fried them and ate them. The taste was most certainly “oyster”, but without the ocean taste that I love about oysters. Next time I’ll put them in a stir fry or something, by themselves they were a little too strongly flavored even for me. I harvested a little over a pound. This was my first time foraging for mushrooms – thank you to my mushrooming friends for the inspiration!
