Any mushrooms hunters out there??
« on: September 15, 2015, 07:55:39 PM »
There is an older gentleman on my route that I have befriended... He is an avid outdoorsman and he has peaked my interest on picking edible mushrooms. He gave some pointers on looking for popinkis and sheepshead. I'm sure the popinkis will be out soon with cooler overnight temps. Anyone have any tips on cleaning, cooking and storage?

I can my shrooms.BOIL,rinse,BOIL RINSE,BOIL 3rd time a bit of salt,put with the hot liquid salt water in to clean hot canning jars with hot sterile lids.tighten and wait for them to cool .you will hear the lids pop.when they are canned.keep in cool dark spot.ive had them stay good for 3 years like that.Thats my method.
My buddy has been get tons of CHICKEN of the WOODS SHROOMS and a few DECENT SHEEP HEADS,1 was close to 25lb.Me and my son were on our land sunday...not 1 edible shroom.pm me for any other info.i give you my #.there is a lot to know.
MY dad has me picking shrooms since I was 7,i go every year.Im 52 now.The last 2 years have been bad picking for me..lack of rain.Good luck

Rams head and sheep head are basicly the same only with a different color.
Chicken of yhe woods grow the same but redish on top.

I was out in the woodlot out back on saturday and found a big sheepshead, or at least it woulda been big. Something else found it first and it was pretty dug up. I'm hoping for a good rain to bring out the shrooms but it doesn't look like we'll be getting much for a while.
