    I was cutting a white oak today and found this on the inside.....smells good but I'm afraid to eat it.
    Any idea ? 20190104_150514.jpg

    Ask JW!

    He seems to know his way around them rather well.

    My climber is quite the authority on mushrooms.

    That said, I can't imagine ever eating a mushroom that someone on the web said was good to eat. I'd want an experienced mushroom picker to see it up close and identify it. The risk is too high.

    But that's just me. ;)

    I don't know squat about mushrooms. That being said and established, I don't think I'd trust anyone's advice on an internet forum.

    Then again, I'd never eat a mushroom anyways. :popcorn2:

    Bleh!

    I barely can stand them things in the can from the store. I'd have to be in survival mode before I ate that stuff!

    I hope he had one of those medical alert pendants that you wear around your neck that automatically detects falls. :yes:

    My GF's brother is working on a doctorate in ecology, specializing in mushrooms. He's a blast to go to the woods with. He refuses, however, to advise on edibles from pics. YMMV

    IMG_1275.JPG I'll eat a bit of these once in awhile but I would never refer it to any one else to eat. Always know what your putting into your mouth, like these amanita's lots of mushroom are very dangerous to eat.
    Also known as reindeer mushrooms

    Lone wolf too.
    Internet now gives us instant access to identify mushrooms. Use it for this.
