Yesterday, I was wondering around my mountain property and came upon this:
I have been buying these at my local Farmers market http://transylvaniafarmersmarket.com/news-events/ and they smell like butter and have a very delicate flavor. So I am super excited to have found a little secret clump of them while I was out clearing culverts on our dirt road.
I was pretty sure that I knew them since I had bought them several times but I did check out their lookalikes. You should never eat a mushroom unless you have seen the real thing in person! But here is a website on their lookalikes. http://www.mushroom-appreciation.com/chanterelle-mushrooms.html I think I have the lookalike Jack’o’Lanterns on the property, too.
Thank you culverts for making me come out in the rain and find these little treasures.
