Foraged Food: Honey Mushrooms

Pipenta | Sep 22, 201201:39 PM     11

I'm starting to go on wild mushroom forays with a local mycological society. Oh what fun! And here I am looking at the loot from my first outing, a big old basket full of honey mushrooms "Armillaria mellea".

I know, even though these mushrooms were identified by an expert, that I should only have a small taste today and see how they sit. Even edible mushrooms give some folks a belly ache. I know to cook them thoroughly. And I know that one should resist the temptation to make an entire meal of them, as they are a bit challenging to digest, so I'm thinking I might have some pasta with them, or rice. I found an interesting recipe online for honey mushroom pierogi and I might make those.

I plan to continue going on forays and hopefully will be finding tasty boletes and hen of the woods and chanterelles and oh you bet next spring I will be on the morel trail.

But just now, I have a lot of these honey mushrooms.

Have any of you chowhounders got a good recipe for honey mushrooms?
