I would go mushroom picking with my dad,when I was a kid. Mom would saute them with onions and butter. I would never trust myself to pick the right one now. That is what the grocery store is for.

I love mushrooms, but I have never eaten wild ones. I would be too afraid to chance it.

There are a few wild mushrooms so distinctive most people can identify them quite easily. Learn those few and stick to what you know. There's a group called "the foolproof four" that are easily identifiable and that don't really have dangerous look alikes. Morels, chicken/chicken of the woods, giant puffballs, and chantarelles. People around here also like shaggy manes...they're very distinctive and edible. Years ago, two fellow researchers and I working on a nesting songbird study on the AK Peninsula had the pleasure of stumbling across an entire hillside just teeming with morels. To the tune of multiple 2 gallon-size Ziplock bags full. We always carried Ziplocks along because they protected our topo maps from rain/wet brush. Those maps were sacrificed in favor of our incredible find rather quickly! We were the only humans around and were expecting our typical meh research camp freeze dried entree, Pilot Bread crackers, generic slab cheese, canned butter, and tea. Thanks to that butter, we ended up with an unforgettable feast that night. A couple of days later we went back to look for more, but the weather had changed, and all the rest had disappeared. I can still taste them!

Not a mushroom fan. I don't eat fungi.

And it seems like restaurants put them in everything except dessert.

You must not like truffle oil. Yummy with a little bit of parmesan cheese on fries.

Shaggy manes are the only one I trust myself to harvest. I owned a piece of property that on some years produces a lot of them and most years a few. On the years just a few come up the neighbors let me pick them from their yards.
