Default Chanterelles and Lobster mushroons

The chanterelles are small and odd colored but they are everywhere! This might be the earliest ive seen them in large amounts. Also i hardly ever find lobsters before they are too late but when they are fresh they are one of my favorites. Krusteaz pancake mix mixed with keystone light makes the perfect fry batter for these small caps!

I'm sure you know this but Lobster mushrooms can be poisonous. They will spore up on deadly mushrooms and so doing take on the edibility of that mushroom. I always look to see if there is evidence of the Lobster growing on or connected to another mushroom. If there is I leave it.

Came to say this... the "lobster" in lobster mushroom is actually a mold that attacks other mushrooms and enhances flavor, think the blue in gorgonzola. In this area, the affected are russulas, which are a HUGE family, most are NOT deadly, but a lot will flip your stomach.



Nice work!

FAKE NEWS!
Sorry Soul, but at least here in the PNW the only known host for Hypomyces lactifluorum is the Russula brevipes. NOT poisonous.
Elsewhere, there's anecdotal reports of Amanitas being assimilated by the 'lobster' fungi but no actual evidence I've ever seen, maybe that's what you're referring to?

Oh, to the OP...........nice haul? Do you mind sharing general location and elevation? I love those lobsters and really love those first button chanterelles of the year!

Eastern coast range in dark thick 15yo reprod. Not where i normally find them but they were everywhere. The lobsters hadnt broke through the needles yet, i found one that had but was on its way out, found the rest under the duff. Id guess around 1000ft elevation. Productivity goes way down when find mushrooms or sheds at work. Lobster bacon mac and cheese is my new favorite.

Awesome!

I normally wouldn't even begin looking until after opening of upland bird/deer hunting... I think I'll have to reconsider that this year.

Thanks for the intel!

Not getting much work done, cant walk 20 ft without running into another patch. Ive only found a few dozen or so that actually look like a chanterelle kind of leafed out, most of them are fat buttons. These hands down beat fall chanterelles they are very dense and meaty. In the last week ive given away as many as i have in this picture this was just today. They are literally everywhere on the entire mountain.

A friend and I went out last Friday after the rain for a look around and ended up with enough good quality Chanterelles for a good meal. We didn't see any Lobsters, though.

I hope this early showing indicates a good upcoming season.

Newclear, thanks for the heads up! I went out this morning for my weekend hike and found some (although I forgot my knife and basket). A sweaty hat makes an OK mushroom hauler. These “dryland” chanterelles are some of the best quality I’ve ever picked. Very firm and dense. I was on the eastern flanks of the coast range at around 1500 feet. Dense fir 2nd growth in the salal and Oregon grape

Nice! Im always hiking back to the truck with a sweaty hat full of mushrooms. Im finding them in the thick nasty reprod where you wouldnt expect them to be. This is a new spot for me so im interested to see the fall explosion because there is hundreds of acres of this reprod and i havent found a spot without chanterelles.

Melissa and I ran out to the coast range this afternoon. Picked two razor clam bags worth in an hour. There are so many out there we were leaving the small ones to grow and barely worked any of the area we normally pick. Wow, crazy they are up so early! Dinner tonight...grilled pork chops and sautéed chantys. Yum.

I found lobsters, small chanterelles and shrimp russula this last weekend near Lincoln City. The lobsters have a crisp texture and mild flavor that I like. But the shrimp russula is perhaps one of the best of all the wild mushrooms I have eaten.

I am going backpacking (and trout fishing) starting Saturday in the central Oregon Cascades and hope to find some fresh porcini and possibly some early matsutake for meals with the brook trout.

At least you got out wandering around. I spent the whole day between the shop, smoker and oven. Can't complain and my kids will be dropping off a bucket of chanterelles tomorrow

If you haven’t been out here’s a report... the Chanty’s have arrived. Melissa and I took the dogs and ran out to the coast range. the dogs had a good time running and sniffing things, the dachshund found a set of tunnels under some stumps that kept her busy for some time trying to get the critters. Lol. Found more mushrooms than we could possibly use. I’m sure folks will be out this weekend but didn’t see much evidence of previous pickers, at least not where we went. Melissa made a really nice kale, chanterelle and chèvre frittata for dinner.

Chanterelles on the edge of my yard, only one other year in the last 14 that they've been there. That year was insane picking so I'm guessing it's pretty good this year. I should go venturing..

Found about 16 lbs of white chanterelles while taking a break from trying to find Bambi for the wife.
Those are some really nice yellow chanterelles, whites are pure white.

A tip: if you've got a bunch of Chants to clean, the fastest method I've found is using the air compressor with a small 'pistol' air gun...just blow the dirt off.


Also, dry to avoid putting dirt in your collection bag. Cut the mushroom and then cut off and discard the base if it's dirty. Leave the dirt in the forest and take clean mushrooms home.

Just like this with the compressor... Got another pile to do but it'll have to wait until after fishing tomorrow. Just sitting on the table tonight.

As a youngster growing up in falls city we picked to make ends meet. We would tape a small paint brush to our knife and clean as we went. $3 a pound for clean #1 buttons or $1 a pound for dirty field grade. This was late 80's to mid 90's. Shroom picking bought lots of groceries in those days.

That’s a good idea. I took a piece of cord and tied it to a small paintbrush the other end has a loop that goes around my wrist. This way if I let go I don’t lose the brush. I’ve lost a few until I tied it to me.

Hoping that this cold front doesn’t bring an early end to fall mushroom hunting but with such a low snow level and frost warning being called for going to go hunt some this weekend. My spots in the coast range are a bit lower in elevation but...

I've become very picky about the chanterelles that I take home. They have to be very good quality: button shaped and clean. I still end up with more than I need.

Much different than when I picked and sold them as a teenager (I don't sell them any more). Back then it was all about picking as many as possible, then hiding the bad ones by putting the good ones on top hahaha 😉

Are these true chanterelles or false chanterelles, and why? I'm easily confused.

Look to be true to me. Solid stems and ridges that converge down the stem, not gills. I can't see them all but false will have hollow stems and gills.

They were snow white when picked (did find a few yellows in the same area and looked totally diferent and both "types" were extremely fresh) but those were a day old. Seems they turn a little yellow after a day in the frig. Are they just a variety of the yellows that start that white and then turn after a day? I have had 2 friends that only had the yellow and refused these because they "definitely not chanterelles". Tasted good to me.

I apologize if they're whites, from the pics they look like yellows, there are yellows that are very light color. Whites are just as good only they can get mushy easier in wet weather. I like them both.

No apology needed, I want to learn. If I am calling them something they are not, I WANT to be corrected (especially with wild 'shrooms). I can easily see thinking they were yellows by the picture I posted. With you saying they get mushy in wet weather, I am certain they are whites as they do get very soggy easy (let dry out a little and still mighty fine eating).
I thank you for trying to help, it IS welcomed. We hunt a few types quite a bit but are BY NO MEANS experts on mushrooms, although we can eat ones we know with the best of them. Hoping our spot still produces this Sunday

I'll ad from my own experience...

I've seen Chanterelle and Rusulla hosted by the same 'lobster' in the same area as Panther.

Better to acknowledge it and... toss... than to wish you had.

We got fish to catch... next year!
