midwest mushroom huntin'

As the summer days go by and the fall take their place, mushroom hunting season is coming closer to it's end(at least up here in the tundra ha).  It is time to reflect on the late summer forage along with some local cultivations.  Mushrooms are some of my favorite ingredients ever as well as one of my favorite foods on their own.  The first find is always the tastiest as I can hardly wait to get them back to the kitchen to pay them homage with a simple saute in butter and a few pinches of salt and pepper.  Without further adieu, this year's find:



 red wine caps and chicken of the woods

blue dolphins or oysters
