Pretty happy with these: 90 min dry brine, flipped frequently and still pink near the bone

Potatoes roasted with beef and bacon drippings.


Bad pic, but seriously the best roast potatoes ever. Little bro practically ate the entire pan.

Used the recipe from serious eats (can’t post link) basically, parboil the potatoes wjth salt and a bit of vinegar (helps bring out the starch)
Toss in fat very roughly so that there’s a thin layer of potato fat mash coating each piece. Roast at 500f(260c) for 18-20min, then flip and go for another 15-18

Side note: mixing ground beef with some ground bacon (the raw kind) makes for some seriously flavourful burgers @alex44938

Thanks!

I’m still basking in the afterglow of their flavor and the entire house is filled with their fragrance.

Still have 2 other patches to check and pick. It’s a good year for them so far. :+1:Weather permitting it will be great.

Wife was direct and to the point about them though. She doesn’t like them anymore. Morels, ok. Maitake are her favorite. But these? Meh.

They released a ton of juice when I put them in the pan.

Checked another patch today.

Glad I did!

That would probably be better than my Wonderbread with this cream of chanterelle soup. :slightly_frowning_face:

Gave a buddy of mine a batch a couple days ago. He did good! Not a dazzling presentation, but hits the spot.

Here’s my most current take:

My kiddo was zeroed the f*ck in on those old man of the woods (black & white/ cap & stem) even in the dense woods at the edge of sunset.

I want shrooms… :sob:

Well…

You’re in the right place at the right time.

As of 1:45 tomorrow, not really

You’ll be back in time for maitake. I’ll let you know when. We can figure something out to get you some. :thinking: I’m literally right at the end of the streetcar line.

They were calling to me so:

Grabbed a couple nice little ones for a nice sauté

Threw in some little San marzanos from the pumpkin patch that used to be a garden, and a touch of oregano & garlic.

Topped a burger

Melted cheese (shredded mozz)

Yum!

Threw the extra on the side. :blush:

Freakin dog didn’t even budge back there. Must have run him down out in the woods. :rofl:

Do you have a good app or book to help I’d would mushrooms? I have a good deal in the woods around my house but the app I use I don’t trust

What’s the app?

I use this:

And

But by now it’s just experience and strategy. I don’t risk anything, and the ones I go for are virtually unmistakable.

Like, a couple of weeks ago there was what appeared to be a few Cesar’s Amanita among various others, a few amanita muscaria, and a variety of boletes. All about 50 feet from a massive patch of chanterelle.

So I just took pics of the others and only gathered the chanterelle.

Also on strategy- I’ve never used only one source for verification. 3 sources and preferably an in person ID from a real mycologist.

I know you’re pretty bright, but Absolutely Don’t use Facebook groups. I’ve seen dickheads intentionally mislead others and laugh about it on those.

You have access to one of those?

Yes. Me and one local mycologist used to forage the same stretch of woods.

Imagine my surprise when dude led a seminar right through my prime stretch of sheepshead territory. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

They can also be reached or accessed through local clubs-
