I recently reviewed my posts to check the time of year these guys had appear in my back yard in the past, and it turns out they tend to make an appearance once in July, then again in September. Well. It’s September, and here they are. The big cap in the photo weighs a half-pound. The entirety weighed in at just over half a kilo. Not wormy, not compromised by heat [it's been a marked wet and cool year here], and not overly mature – these were fine specimens.
They were well appreciated aside confit’d pork neck. I just wish more people knew about them and had access to them. Such a treasure of a mushroom in my world.
***Don’t die eating wild mushrooms that you haven’t ID’d and blame it on me. Wild mushrooms can be vile-nasty-toxic, and this is my disclaimer that it’s not my fault if you mess up and get disastrously ill based on the information above. I’m just sayin’.
