I have never eaten a beefsteak but I hear they are meaty and very tasty.I would like to hunt shrooms but I have a fear of eating the wrong thing..I had my stomach pumped and ate charcoal
when I was 3 from eating some poison toadstool..

Interesting. I don't think I've seen either one of those mushrooms in the woods (Northwest Pa). Maybe I just never noticed them. I just stick with my old faithful shrooms.

These are the ones I pick and their nicknames (what we call them):

Hen of the woods (Sheephead)
Meadow mushrooms (Field mushrooms)
Morels
Oysters - these are very hard to find nowdays
Honey mushrooms (stumpies) - my least favorite
Aborted entoloma (undeveloped form - shrimp) (fully formed - grays)
Puffballs
Chicken mushrooms (sulfurs) - I don't really care for these. Some people love them though.

Picking most of these mushrooms were passed down from generation to generation. I haven't tried too many new ones.

Nice shrooms pondbank!

I just can't get myself to be comfortable harvesting something that if I'm wrong could make me sick as a dog.
