Observation 111332: Amanita jacksonii Pomerleau
When: 2012-09-27
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Located 5 large fairy rings in a mature White Oak glade. Intermittent rainfall may have caused the spacing out of specimen’s maturity levels. I found everything from barely emerging eggs, to fully matured and open in the same ring/spot.
The colors are awesome to see, I hope the pictures do them justice.

Our annual Mingo foray begins today, I will see how many different Amanita’s we can find for you.

The very young and tender ones, I slice fresh into salads. I think this allows this species to be enjoyed the most. The color, texture, and flavor are all appreciated this way in my opinion.
Middle of the road size caps, I like to place the caps gill side down into a cast iron skillet that has been lightly rubbed down with olive oil and placed on my grill, make sure it is hot. Grill for a minute or two and carefully turn them over. Add a little salt and grill a couple of minutes more. Remove them and place them on top of a thin piece of garlic/olive oil grilled/toasted bread. Sprinkle with fresh Parmesan cheese and try not to hurt yourself eating it.
The bulk of a huge find such as this one is shared fresh with friends or sauteed and frozen for use in other dishes.
Obviously this is one time you are probably wishing you had been here:)

Dr. R,
Your going to hate me….
If you look at the dates on the images you will notice that they are a few days before I knew you existed!
Therefore, I regret to inform you that most of the evidence was eaten, and my attempts at drying mature specimens were futile for you purposes.
Thanks to you I have since learned the error of my ways and you can rest assured that the next time this patch fruits, you are first on my list.
Yes, they where good!
John

Nice going, John.
