Mushroom Hunting

8/14/17 – Blueberry picking is a traditional summer activity, but the North Woods offers another delectable treat that requires a little more hunting: Mushrooms.
Yesterday, several of the Sawbill crew went searching for lobster mushrooms, and to great success.

Lobster mushrooms (hypomyces lactifluorum) are named after their distinctive color, which is similar to cooked lobster meat. When cooking lobster mushrooms, it is important not to over-do it, as the flavor can be easily lost. They are delicious when paired with a white wine.

A beautiful bounty
Mushroom hunting should always be done with caution and with an experienced hunter. Happy gathering ~ Elena
