Some Help Please...

I have only hunted morels in all my 49 years ...I was out Bluegill fishing at Seven Lakes State Park...I heard a couple talking so I asked are you finding something good to eat...They said yes mushrooms, so of course I had to go look...Lady had a bag of these and offered me the whole bag I said no but thanks...She stated the name of them but I lost that thought hours before getting home...So on my way out from fishing I did a quick look around...I ran into a bunch of these that they were picking, so I picked 2 just for my interest...

Now I would like to know what they are, are they good to eat and how do you prepare and cook these...Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks,
Dave

P.S. The Bluegills were good too bought 22 of them home!!

Re: Some Help Please...

i agree they look like golden chants (cantherallus cibarius) those look like very young specimens.

they have a very fruity smell, some say like apricots. I think they smell heavenly and you would not expect a mushroom to smell like they do. they also have what are called false gills, which look like gills but they are actually part of the mushroom, rather than a separate tissue like a typical gilled mushroom would be. They only grow from the earth and never from wood. be sure to slice off the dirty part, and when you do that, check the stem for pinholes. these mushrooms are a favorite of larvae. i typically only keep about 30-40% of what i find due to bugs.

forgot to mention, these are very easy to overwhelm in a dish. however, when i am done eating and my palate is cleansing, those chants linger for a while. they also have a lot of water to cook off in them, they sweat like crazy in the pan!

Are they good? They are very good. In the top 10 for most people, perhaps ahead of morels (maybe that's been debated 100 times).
If I have chants, I thaw deer. Cut deer into 5-10 gram pieces and brown, then cook on stove or oven, covered, maybe 1.5-2hr, in some water (not too much, adding red wine permitted). Later, saute shrooms. Make a rue (brown some flour in butter),and with deer liquid create gravy, which you finish by adding heavy cream (sour cream works too), and mixing everything. Spices added to deer are up to you (with deer, experiment with marjoram and consider celery seed). Over noodles is easy, but making semmelknödel is better, and more Bavarian. Don't even need the deer, just make a white sauce you like and throw the cooked shrooms in. Saute and incorporate in omelets works too. I admit that I thaw deer when getting lucky with quite a few species of shrooms.
