Got rained out today again so went scouting for some deer sign and found some shrimp of the woods.They are very good eats for those who have never tried them.Allso found some honeys but already had the shrimp for supper.
You can find shrimp around clearcuts or under pines or even in open timber sometimes.If you know what honeys are,you can find shrimp anywhere you find honeys.Here`s a couple pictures of what they look like in the woods.
Is there a good way to cook them? When I just saute them in butter I don't care for the taste for some reason. I have had them deep fried that someone else made and they were good. I know people love them.
There is some weird relationship between honeys and shrimps. The honey fungus is a parasite to the entoloma and it turns it into the shrimp form. Another theory is the Entoloma parasitizes the Honey and that the deformed (shrimp) mushroom is actually a honey mushroom.
