Lactarius Deliciosus

Highly prized in Poland, these wild mushrooms of striking colour are quite abundant here in southwestern Ontario. Under the right conditions hundreds can be found in a single day deep inside the dark forests of conifers. Luckily for us, they come and go right through until the end of October. It will be an adventure you won't soon forget as we collect these along with Summer Oysters, Gem Studded Puffballs, King Boletes . . . wild fungi, each classified as "choice" on the culinary scale.

Puck's Plenty tours has been rated as one of the top foraging adventures in the world by Marriot International and Travel and Leisure Magazine.

Here they come!

It's the puffball season as the monsters of the fungi world make their appearance once again. The Giant Puffball is another mushroom rated as "choice" and we've found several recipes to prove it. Our favourite is the Puffball Pizza. It's amazing!

We'll take to beautiful trails that skirt lakes and streams and meander through darkened wood, home to an assortment of other mushrooms of late Summer. Wild edible plants will also be in abundance such as wild watercress, day lily tubers, wild ginger and more.

Pear Shaped Puffballs

The Pear Shaped Puffball is another delicacy of late Summer that thrives well into Autumn. You can find them in great clusters on old hardwood stumps, some even spilling onto the forest floor. About the size of a button mushroom they are perfect for soups and stews or simply sauteed with butter and garlic. We'll be searching for these as well as the Giant Puffball, the Lactarius Deliciosus, the fleshy Summer Oyster and more on trails only 20 minutes from Stratford.
