The Mushrooms of Autumn (Panellus serotinus, aka the late oyster)

Last autumn was a poor foraging year in these parts for certain fruits like the wild cherry, but it was an extraordinary year, wet as it was, for fungi. Often, as I trekked through the northwoods, there were too many mushrooms to count, or even photograph. Let’s take a look at some of the more interesting, a few of which are nice edibles and medicinals.

The first day’s filming was interrupted when luck brought a deer across my path and a quick end to the season’s meat foraging. But we continue the second day with more information on an especially nice and often overlooked edible fungi, the late oyster.
