Collection location: Lake Tipsoo, Highway 410, Pierce Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]
Found on Sitka spruce at the summit of highway 410 near lake Tipsoo. 2nd image is on the stump next to the rest(which were fruiting from the fallen portion of the tree. Massive young clusters-some two feet across.
I’ve eaten this strain twice now with dill, butter and parsley and have had no ill effects or usual “conifericola bitterness.” Perhaps the milder flavor is only associated with spruce and this species. Most collections from western hemlock substrates have all tasted like bitter aspirin. These had a lemony chicken flavor-which paired very nicely with the fresh dill.
Temp: mid 70’s, sunny.
