Low temp applewood smoke for about an hour. Saved some to throw in tonight's grub and the rest are in the dehydrator. Delicious. Did this with a batch of morels a couple years ago and really enjoyed having those smokey nuggets available for flavoring.

I have one dead standing cottonwood that has produced oyster mushrooms for several years and a few laying on the ground that are starting to fruit this year. Might be the last year for the standing one.

Lucky you! Sounds and looks wonderful. The only safe locals on my land are black trumpets, which, while very tasty, are so strong that it's easy to get tired of them. That is, of course, until you have a few dry years in a row.

Yeah, these are a treat. Never had a black trumpet. I mostly get morels and oysters though there are a variety of other edible types around here.

This was today's batch. Looks like it's going to be about a pint dried down.

Here's a flush on the standing cottonwood a couple years ago. There were at least that many more up higher.

Man, my mouth is watering. You are really lucky to have a regular supply.

Here's black trumpets which are nice because there are no look alikes...

A few years back I started seeing a few chanterelles but didn't take any hoping they would proliferate. Alas, no luck there.
