First Pines Near Nanimo
Same forest near Nanaimo, very large and waterlogged White Chanterelles, Firm and no bugs on the Red Juice Milky Caps, and lots of Elfin Saddle. First two Hedghogs I've found near Nanaimo this year. The one White Chanterelle that I brought home. Even when t...

Large Fluted Black Elfin Saddle and a Sweet Patch of Sweet Tooth

The Secret to Delicioius Chanterelle Mushrooms
I remember the first time I tasted a wild mushroom. It was a Giant Puffball that my father had rescued from us children. "Oh, hold on!" my dad called, and something in the tone in his voice made us stop. Someone, not me, one of the other kids I'm sure, was ...
