A FIND ON OUR MORNING WALK-- WILD OYSTER MUSHROOMS!

Best Blog Tips
Oyster mushrooms we harvested off of an alder stump on Denman Is.

Sorry I have been blogging so seldom lately! I have alot of things on the go, not the least of which is starting on a new book with co-author David Lee of Fieldroast. I traveled to Vancouver this last weekend to meet with and work with David, which was really fun! But that's another story!

I wanted to do a short blog on our wild oyster mushrooms, which we are sometimes lucky enough to find this time of year. We only found a small batch this year, but that was enough to inspire a couple of yummy meals!
UPDATE: Both will be in my new book "World Vegan Feast" coming out Sept. 2011.

Hi Bryanna!
I always thought it was dangerous to pick wild mushrooms as some are poisonous. How do you know which ones are not? How do you know they are safe to eat?
Peace~

Silvia, I only pick three that I know well-- chanterelles, oyster mushrooms (they grow only on old fallen alder logs), and occaisionally, cauliflower mushrooms.
