We forage for mushrooms after a couple days of rain when they seem to pop out everywhere! Our favorites are chanterells, lobster tail, oyster, and chicken of the woods.
I dry them on newspaper for a week or until hard and then put them in a paper bag (not plastic in case there is any moisture left in them).
We take a bag of dried mushrooms when we cook outdoors on the fire. Add a little water to them and they reconstitute with a “fresh picked” flavor and taste great on a steak!
