Shammy Season!!

Porcini, Yukon Style

Pan o shrooms, ready for stew on Saturday

Beautiful Comb Tooth

Been really busy working and shrooming. We have such a short season that I can't spare any time to do anything but pick! Trying to stock pile up to get me through winter! We have had a ton of rain and hardly any sun, so certain species of mushrooms are abundant and others are not making a appearance at all! Would not write this season off all together, my bags are still being filled twice a week at least! We are celebrating food day here at Kate's this Saturday, thought I would share my menu with you all. If anyone is up in the Klondike this Saturday, you will want to stop by for a bite to eat, or to say hi! lol

    Jeeez, Thx Cowgirl, wish you could come by for dinner. ;) I love our peek mushroom season, so much free food to get in the wild, though our time is limited. The porcini's are prime right now!

  4. The Comb Tooth is so beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen it before. How do you prepare it and what does it taste like?

    Hey Janet,
    I agree it is a real stunner to come across. I simply sautee it with a bit of butter and salt and pepper. It has a crab like flavor and texture. One of my favs for sure!
