Son of a gun, it looks like these mushrooms are legit....
Now I'll be keeping an eye out for these, too.
Those are feral yellow oysters, becoming very common in southern wisconsin the past few years. The rumor that i heard is that there was a huge fire at a commercial mushroom grow facility, and the spores went up with the smoke and came back down all over the place.
Been years since I've harvested oysters, but I've never seen them so yellow or circular-capped. Is the stalk off-center and do the gills go down the stalk?
We gave up on morels this year. They have to have appeared by now. We walked the woods 5 times and never found one. Strange year. We did harvest a bunch of pheasant backs though. We plan a walk on Saturday to see if the oysters are around.
Still finding a few. Mostly big yellows but a couple greys mixed in. Took my 6 year old daughter out with me the other day. We went back to a spot i pick 14 in the afternoon before that just thinking I missed some and its normally my best spot. Sure enough as I'm walking looking off in the distance. My daughter yells daddy daddy look and right next me is a big grey. Her first time out looking for morels and she finds the first one on her own. That made me a proud and happy father. We only found 5 that afternoon. Went back to that spot today and got 2 more. So not bad picking 21 out of there considering the rough year it been for finding them. Also picked 14 out of that spot earlier in the season.
Where in Door County? I usually don't like going there. Too many Fibs lol.
Has anyone ever used rice flour or any other alternative to regular flour to cook morels?, My buddy has Celiac Disease and cant have any wheat products
Side note: found these around Yellostone today, think this weekend will be the last chance to find em around here, all big yellows and alot of rot. No new growth
