    Thanks for putting up the quiz. I think I’ll go buy a regional mushroom guidebook.There’s a lot of flavors out there that you cant get in the store.

      Thanks, charlie. I enjoyed making it. And you’re absolutely right about finding wild mushrooms. They may look weird but they taste great!

    80% correct on the quiz but you need to be 100% before eating any fungi found growing in the wild. There are so many different types growing on our property in northern Michigan. I’m sure some are edible but until I know for sure I’m not going to try them. I do love to hunt Morels. Good Quiz.

      Agreed Judi! I love finding and eating wild mushrooms and have been doing it for years, but there’s always mushrooms you come across that are hard to identify. If you’re not 100% confident a mushroom is safe to eat…just let it be.

    I like the quiz but that orange mushroom is not a chanterelle… its a jackolantern mushroom and its not edible. Chanterelles have ridges not gills. Hope nobody eats those lol.

      They must have deleted the Jack-O-Lantern, what they have now is definitely a Chanterelle
