They are the best tasting mushies I’ve picked to date. The darker one’s are just like portabello but the flavour is way more intense. The lighter one’s were like a button but firmer and way more flavor.
I wouldn’t suggest anyone eat what they don’t know, like i did but; I did research the one’s that could kill me and these weren’t those so belly ache, or tasty treat was the (all be it small) gamble.
I ate some of both cooked at 11am yesterday (to test them out) and after 8 hours had some with my guest (who also knew the risk).
If I saw more ‘o these I’d be pick’n ’em with glee.
Made a mushroom and Squid ink pasta, with shrimp, Pecorino Romano, and tomato. Also made crusteenies with the white button types.
Thanks for all your kind efforts.
…although it is unlikely they will help you much with this decision. They are definitely Agaricus. The sometimes whispered opinion about Agaricus is that if they smell okay, then they probably are okay. That is not true for any other mushroom and it is not true of all Agarics. I don’t want to encourage experimentation, but if you were to experiment (ever), you know how to do it, right? You just cook and eat a small piece while not eating a meal and wait and see if it goes down okay. But you should get someone local or at the nearest mushroom club to identify it before you experiment – just to be safe.
I cut a couple before refrigeration and there was no staining at all?! Its got brown spores!!!! That’s good right? God I want to eat these! :)
Mild mushroom smell, no staining, no chlorine smell.
Could you photograph a fresh one that has not been refrigerated after it has been sliced open? We are looking for either red or yellow staining. Also sniff carefully around the gills and the base of the stalk after it is cut. We are looking for an almond (good) or chlorine (bad) smell. This would be in addition to something I would loosely call a normal mushroomy smell.
