Spring edibles foraging
« on: Jun 06, 2021, 06:13 AM »
When ice season ends I turn my attention to foraging. This was another great year for the ramps here in southeast NY, took about 25 pounds, eating all we could stand an selling about half of them.

From May 20 through June 5, we harvested every 3 days a huge flush of terrific golden oyster mushrooms, and could not even reach them all. Ate more than I should have and also put a bunch in the freezer for use throughout the year.

I estimate we took easily 40 pounds of golden oysters, I am still sauteeing them, eating some now and freezing some. We could not even reach I'd say 30 pounds that were too high in the tree, but we got to witness these high ones do a massive spore dump - you could see what looked like smoke pouring out of them and that will seed the area for the future to get more when the conditions are right.
