    We' ve got other stuff, though those are the main ones you might be looking after. After truffels, but you need a trained pig to dig those ones up, and i m not trained.

    I hope you're trained to really know your mushrooms. A mistake can be fatal. I'm no expert, but my brother is.

    I used to pick them up with my daddy, now i tend to buy them in the store, to avoid getting my stomach pumped.

    I like mushrooms on a nice steak, pizza or in cream of mushroom soup.
    I haven't hunted for them in decades.

    We have chicken of the woods, morels and several other edible varieties. No cubes but, I've seen a few pans although I'm not looking for those kind these days lol. ;-)

    J’ai ramassé 3kgs de cèpes dans le Minnesota cette année.
    On trouve pas mal de morilles et de chanterelles par ici.

    Morilles and chanterelles are the good kind. Les trompettes de la mort are good in a omelette. and Bolets are good whatever you might make of them.

    I used to go pick them up with my dad too (and still do if I go back to France in fall).
    We had quite a lot of variety in Vendée (western France), but we were mostly interested in cèpes, trompettes-de-la-mort and girolles.
    Once in a while we would pick coulemelles and agarics des prés.

    I don't speak a lick of French but, knowing English and Spanish I have a fair bit of French reading comprehension for some reason. I guess due to Spanish being latin-based and English having thousands of loan words from Latin and French.

    Do you guys eat the mushrooms which grow up on wood ? Apparently you can eat some without getting poisoned, but they re rubberry.
