    Mushrooms are great either raw or cooked. Need to be freshly cooked though, the ones at hotel breakfasts cooked two hours earlier and left under a light are no good.

    I tried growing psylocibin twice to no avail. I also picked "lobster" mushrooms one day and made $300+...

    I underestimated the importance of being sterile. I just didn't put enough effort in thinking it would be easier...

    I like wild mushrooms like morels. I don’t like those mushrooms that people put on pizza.

    They might have been referring to bracket fungi, which are mostly non-poisonous.

    I remember reading something in survival book which said they're the only ones you could possibly consider as a food source unidentified, but even then you'd be advised to do various tests before chowing down. Chew a bit, spit it out, wait and see if your mouth reacts. If that goes well, swallow a tiny bit, wait 1-2 days and see if there's a reaction.

    I guess the rational is that you'll probably survive the taste tests even if you get a poisionous one, where as that wouldn't be the case with certain ground mushrooms.

    Got a decent load of these lil bad boys a couple of weeks back. The only type of shroom I'm comfortable picking and eating.

    It was all about the cyanescens where we grew up. Still the most potent mushroom I've comsumed

    Yea, it's an entire crazy world of its own. Trees actually use mycorrhizal networks to transport information, which is a pretty cool fact about fungus.

    On my list of things to grow one day...I love different types, the Chinese use a small black mushroom, maybe like an oyster shroom.

    Anyway, at my campsite in CT all different types grow, but I am currently not knowledgeable enough to pick and consume.

    Back in the day I enjoyed some mushrooms that made the world seem strange...Peace.

    Sounds like a fun hobby, but I'm afraid of eating something toxic from misidentification.

    Yeah I've known some people who were really confident that the mushroom they picked weren't poisonous and ended up getting sick.
