Jeff wanted to have another go at finding the road we missed last mushroom foray in the
We drove in another way…
looking for the road that would lead us to mushrooms..
We scurried up and sure enough..
I looked down and my heart skipped a beat..
Cauliflower fungus is edible. The fruitbodies should be collected in good, fresh condition and thoroughly washed to remove dirt and grit from amongst the lobes.
The fruitbodies have been shown to have anti-tumour properties, and to contain chemicals which may stimulate the immune system and inhibit growth of the 'superbug' MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).
This was a very exciting find!!
While bushwhacking through the woods I try not to disturb spider webs..though I know i must end up with hundreds of spiders on me..
Better than ticks.. Have never had a tick on me in Oregon.
We never did find our favorite picking spot..
Will try again when we go back to the coast after our appointment for Homey.
We walked to the beach..to catch the views..
I wanted to find some King Boletes but had no luck.
Just right for grilling!
I cleaned the Chanterelles..
I dried some Chanterelles, dried and froze some of the Cauliflower mushrooms, saving a good amount for cooking.
I ended up making a Cauliflower mushroom stroganoff , sautéed Chanterelles and a potato, hedgehog, chanterelle casserole.
