Dreadead Mouse !

Found the dreaded mouse today searching for Blewits in a large white pine stand. The Mouse,when found, is a good indicator that the fall seson is just about over and done with. Also known as the Gray Knight,Dirty tricholoma. The scientific name is Tricholoma terreum.

Hi Leonard , You have bigger mouse @8&%# then I do. I've picked them one time with a friend, and don't trust myself alone. I thought they were very well flavored , but just don't trust my ID I know there are many blackish / black tricks. Please tell me your theory . I know they grow in pines , just can't figure which is which.

I haven't tried drying them, but I think slicing and drying them would be the best way. I do that with Honeys and they reconstitute great.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricholoma_terreum

Read up on the mouse at the above link.
Never had a problem with the I.D. Looks just like a velvety charcoal grey mouse. As far as eating them, a fying pan with some butter,olive oil. salt and pepper to taste,sautee untill all the moisture is gone, then scrample about 3 or 4 eggs over them.............works for me.

I never pick enough to worry about wether to dehydrate,or sautee and freeze them. I could pick a bushel of them if i wanted to.

Jack, the poisenous look alike to the mouse,Tricholoma pardinum
doesn't even come close in my book to confuse the two. Just my oppionion, someone else may have a tough time distinguishing the two.
