Yellow Foot mushrooms anyone?
I went mushroom picking Saturday just outside of Mikkeli in eastern Finland. I ran into some really good mushrooms like the Yellow Foot (Cantharellus lutescens). It belongs to the same family like the tasty Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) and Horn of Plenty (Craterellus cornucopioides).
While most mushrooms die when there’s frost, the Yellow Foot is very resistant. It disappears when it gets buried under snow.
These mushrooms are not like the deadly Destroying Angel (Amanita virosa).
Two pictures of the Yellow Foot mushroom. Don’t pick wild mushrooms
based on pictures. Go with a person who has picked them before so you’ll
learn to recognize them in the wild.
Yellow Foots grow in groups.
