Natural Dyeing, Spinning, Knitting, and Sewing Explorations
We have porcinis here in the ski basin (as well as chanterelles--yum!). the way to tell is to check the undersides. Porcinis are spongey/sporey instead of having gills commonly associated with mushrooms. We pick them late summer and sometimes have enough to dry and last us through the winter. I was real scared at first too, but now that I know about how to identify them, it doesn't feel so dangerous. Love to you and the lady (and the babies!). Happy winter!xo. ak.p.s. Presents on the way!
she's still alive!! me too. I think I will have more today. The kind that grow near us are Suillus pungens. AKA " The pungent Slippery Jack" It smells like buttery bananas.Anna, I would love to visit and go mushroom hunting with you!!!! Miss you mucho!
