Camera lens was completely soaked and fogged due to the heavy rain and hail today. Unfortunately, I came upon this beautiful P. multiplex at the end of the day. Very large, meaty specimen with 2 other FB’s nearby. This is the only specimen harvested this season(out of 5). Delicious and buttery compared to Cantharellus species- lacking apricot aroma but has a spermatic almost “natural morel” odor, especially after dehydrating.
Also interesting was the fact that this large cluster(and the others around it) were deeply indigo blue in the field but became jet black with gray hymenium by the time I arrived home. Never seen this before.
Fruiting beneath Spruce and old growth Douglas fir.
Temp: 30’s mixed rain/hail.
NOTE: Dehydrated specimens available.
