dan the mushroom man

IMG_3683Dan, the Mushroom Man was at the farmers market this morning. With fall getting darker and colder, the thought of a savory mushroom tea propelled my hand to pick up the bag. Dried chanterelle, sweet tooth, morel and lobster mushrooms. It’s a worthwhile pantry investment. This bag will last long. Ground up a little bit at a time, adding just the right umami to meals. Dan is such a sweet old time harvester. It was nice to engage about forest life.

  1. This is awesome! Our farmer’s market only has fresh mushrooms, which is nice but I worry that I won’t use them quickly enough. Dried mushrooms are so much fun. Do you have any ideas about how you’ll use them yet, besides savory tea?

    Dan had baskets of the mushrooms fresh too but I was also worried I’d let them go to waste. He suggested putting a little in the spice grinder and adding the powder to dishes. I’ll probably just sprinkle a bit on everything. I’ve never had ‘sweet tooth’ before so I’ve a bit of reading to do, a lot to play around with. I’d love to go mushroom picking but I want to do it with a pro. I’ve heard enough horror stories to be cautious 🙂
