Re: “Police! Drop That Fungus!

this is for happy hunter, when i was in elementary school my grandfather, dad, uncles, brother and sister used to go into the pittsburg/antioch hills and go mushroom hunting, my grandfather used to show us the ones to pick, so off into the hills we would go. we would find white button ones and these sometimes large brown ones. the brown ones had such a woody meaty taste, i miss them and cant find that taste in any store bought ones fresh or dried, closest one would be the polrcini. This would be the time to go after the first rains. any chance youd be going out soon for the chantrells and do you know the ones im talking about. nobody remembers the ways to tell the
good from the bad,and im really not in the market for a new liver. id like to get some of those chantrells if unsure about the brown ones.
thanks john
