Mushrooms

Decided to transplant some nice looking mushrooms into the yard.  Hoping for some good results.  I suspect these orange ones, shown here, are edible. I found them under pine trees when I was out for a run, earlier. I know that the pretty red ones with white spots are definitely not for eating (found those under the same pine tree!)

Maybe someone out there can let me know.

  1. Hi Vicki, those are definitely Pine Mushrooms and are extremely delish. They hold their texture well and therefore are good in stew type dishes or cooked with other vegetables. I don't think you should eat the ones with the white dots "fly agaric" (they may be hallucinogenic try this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanita_muscaria

    1. Thanks Monica - fried mushrooms are in order, then. I think I'll save the white dotted ones for photography only!

  2. Update... just so you all know, these are delicious fried in oil, garlic and parsley.

    1. Sorry I didn't notice this earlier.
      Monica is right. These are Lactarius deliciosus - Saffron Cap.
