Upcoming Events for September

October ~ November

September 28th


Lepista Irina

One of the more exciting new finds of 2018 is the Lepista Irina, a large, meaty mushroom that inhabits forest floors from mid-September through the end of the season in November. Like most mushrooms the younger the better for taste. But there's something about the Lepistra that delays decay which means individual mushrooms will be around for some time. With most "choice" wild edible mushrooms there is a sweetness about them. Moreover, they are quite abundant.

We're off to the trails and along with the Lepistas we will be searching for Blewits (Lepista Nuda), Tooth Fungi and both Pear Shaped and Gem Studded Puffballs.

Marriott International listed Puck's Plenty as one of the "Top 10 Adventures to Have this Summer". Join us and find out why!

Start time: 10:00 am. Duration: approx. 3hrs
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person

September 29th


Shrimp of the Woods

Also known as Aborted Entoloma, the Shrimp of the Woods is easily identified (some say they look like popcorn) and quite numerous throughout the Autumn. They are quite special only because of the transformation that takes place especially when they grow alongside or close to Honey Mushrooms. Their "aborting" if you will, consists of abandoning their typical mushroom shape (cap and stem) into what you see in the photo. Not to worry. Their taste is remarkable and are best sauteed to appreciate their culinary benefits. Here's a recipe from Forager Chef you might want to try: Blackened Shrimp of the Woods.

Start time: 10:30 am. Duration: approx. 3hrs
Where: Kitchener/Waterloo Area.
Please phone or email for exact location.
Cost: $35.00/person
