When: 2012-12-17

Collection location: Horsfall Beach, North Bend, Coos Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Laurel (algoressister)

No specimen available


This one I managed not to break, before I got to the base. I left some of the sand on the bottom. They were already wet when I brought them in, so I rinsed the debris (if I eat them I am not fond of bugs) off. I am not sure which “veil” this represents. They smell pretty strong to me...
I broke this one off, sorry, first time… This is a better example of the gills, and their attachment.

I DEFINATELY do! Prime eating! Try adding it sliced in 1/8-inch slabs to spaghetti sauce over spaghetti. YUM! It takes a while to cook, so let it slow simmer for 20 minutes. It is a firm fungus which tastes terrific to me. To most Asians this is one of the best-eating mushrooms around.

Careful who you share your matsutake bed locations with, algoressister. They are highly sought after, not unlike truffles.
