In a large saucepan, combine the vinegar, 1 cup water, the rosemary, bay leaves, salt, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, add the mushrooms, and adjust the heat to a low simmer. Cover, and cook until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes.
Pack the mushrooms and their seasonings into a sterilized jar or crock, and pour over them the cooking liquid to cover. Seal the jar, and refrigerate at least 24 hours or up to a week, to let the flavors develop.
Mushrooms symbolize the beauty and magic of nature, and the amanita muscaria is the quintessential mushroom. It is the mushroom that was featured in Alice in Wonderland, and was the subject of European folklore, and often represented in Christmas tree ornaments. These earrings pay homage to these mushrooms, and to the fields and forests where they are found. They are handcrafted from jeweler's brass and Sterling, and carefully hand-painted, and sealed with protective resin. And it gets better! The stems dance lightly beneath the caps, and bits of the decorative elements will glow in the dark after being exposed to bright light for several minutes. The measure a scant 3/4\"wide and 1\" long without the Sterling earring wires. These earrings are light and fun to wear, and make great gifts, too.
Aleuria aurantia is also known as the orange peel fungus, due to its remarkable appearance. It looks like discarded orange peel on the ground. Aleuria aurantia is frequently seen flat to the ground or with a cup-like appearance, due to upturned edges. The cups are irregular in shape and may have a split or fold in on one side. Aleuria aurantia has thin and fragile sheets of orange, and they can come together looking like petals that form a rosette-like shape. Because of the cup shaping of this mushroom, it has also been referred to as the orange fairy cup fungus. It is a small to medium-sized mushroom and can grow to the size of a small orange.
Fruiting Body: No distinctive cap. Thin; brittle & fragile. Can be flat or cup shaped; may form a rosette-like structure. Grow up to 10cm diameter; can be flat to the ground or up to 5cm tall. When young the underside is fuzzy and white-grey, turning a dullish orange.Flesh: Pale yellow or orange. Fragile.Stem: No distinct stem; a thickening in the center of the cap attaches it to the ground.Smell: Pleasant; mushroomyTaste: Nondistinctive; meaty.Spores: Big and ellipsoid with a net-like pattern, developing points at each end with maturity. Released when knocked if mushroom is fully developed; spores also released by rain drops.Spore color: White.Edibility: Edible.Habitat: Saprobic. Usually grows in clusters. Like clayey ground or areas with gravel; grows on disturbed ground like trails, roadside; embankments or at the edge of woods; sometimes on woodchips. Europe; North and South America; Asia and Australasia.Season: Country dependent Spring to Fall. In warmer climates may grow in Winter. In California peak growing season is November to January.
Sowerbyella rhenana is similar to Aleuria aurantia, but the former is smaller and will develop a stem, unlike Aleuria aurantia. The Acervus epispartius is also similar to Aleuria aurantia as it is quite orange and does not have a stem, but there is a flap of tissue inside the cup, and it has a felty feel underneath.
Aleuria aurantia is not poisonous and does not produce and toxins, but it does look a little like some Otidea mushrooms, which can be toxic; therefore, it is always wise to consult a professional mycologist if in doubt.

What are stinkhorns Stinkhorns are mushrooms that are found from the tropics to more temperate regions such as Wisconsin. They can suddenly appear in mulch, lawns, and areas with bare soil. These visually-shocking fungi get their common name from their characteristic, unpleasant odor. Although they are often unwanted additions to home gardens, stinkhorns do not cause plant disease. Because stinkhorns can grow on dead organic material, they actually are beneficial in that they contribute to the recycling of plant debris into nutrients that improve soil fertility and can be used by garden plants.
How do I control stinkhorns Stinkhorns are short-lived and will naturally disappear quite rapidly. If stinkhorns are too unsightly, if their smell becomes too putrid, if they attract too many insects, or if there is concern about small children or pets eating them, pluck them from the ground and discard them as they appear. Keep in mind however, that removing stinkhorns will not eradicate them. Stinkhorn hyphae will remain in the soil or mulch and will eventually produce other stinkhorn mushrooms. In addition, flies and other insects carrying stinkhorn spores can introduce these fungi to new locations.
I am always trying new ways to make salmon. I was at the market in the produce section and saw leeks, which I happen to love and had all the rest of the ingredients for this Orange Salmon with Leeks and Mushrooms. Earthy mushrooms and sweet leeks are a classic combination and pair beautifully with this orange marinated salmon.
Bring the oil and sea salt to heat on medium high in a frying pan with a lid.Add the scallions and saute for 2 minutes.Add the garlic and ginger and saute for 1 minute.Add the mushrooms to the pan and saute for 5-7 minutes, until the mushrooms start to lose their moisture and the pan starts to brown.Add the orange juice and deglaze the pan.Add the renaming ingredients except for the tapioca flour and related water.Stir until thoroughly combined.Reduce to medium low and simmer until reduced to about 1 cup.Whisk the tapioca with the water until dissolved.Stirring constantly, slowly add the tapioca mixture until thickened.Season to taste and serve immediately.
Jack-o-lantern mushrooms are fleshy, bright orange mushrooms found growing in dense clusters on rotting wood, dead trees, and stumps. However, the substrate can sometimes be concealed under the leaf litter, giving the impression that it is growing directly out of the ground like its edible look-a-like, the chanterelle. There are two primary ways to distinguish the species. Firstly, chanterelles rarely grow in dense clusters, and never directly on rotting wood. Secondly, chanterelles have false gills (folds on the underside of the cap not structurally distinct from the flesh of the cap itself) whereas jack-o-lantern mushrooms have true gills (structures truly separate from each other and from the flesh of the cap). For those interested in collecting mushrooms to eat, these features can be the only difference between a prized edible and a trip to the hospital. Jack-o-lantern mushrooms contain the toxin muscarine, which, although not deadly in humans, causes severe cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain for several days.
Like many fungi, Omphalotus olearius is the subject of a taxonomic dispute. O. olearius is a European species which some argue is distinct from jack-o-lantern mushrooms found in the New World. Those in favor of the distinction classify the fungi found on the east coast as O. illudens, while those found on the west coast would be O. olivascens.
This cultural association between orange juice and psychedelics may have even spawned an urban legend: Many recall hearing cautionary tales about people who became convinced they were glasses of orange juice after dropping acid.
In other words, perhaps the most effective drink-drug pairing is not acid and orange juice, but shrooms and lemon juice. The easiest way to achieve this is to squeeze a few lemons into water and drink it right before you first take the mushrooms, says Giordano. Some people even dissolve mushrooms in lemon juice and make teas.
But what about LSD, the drug many of these ideas about orange juice seem to center on Giordano and Witowski have both heard anecdotal reports of orange juice enhancing acid trips, but neither of them know of any scientific explanation for why this would happen.
An obscure, 15-year-old study has been getting a lot of attention lately thanks to a sensational claim made by a couple of scientists that an unnamed species of bright orange mushroom found in Hawaii caused spontaneous orgasms in a handful of women who smelt its odour.
Belonging to Dictyophora genus of stinkhorn mushrooms, which has since been renamed as Phallus, the mushroom is said to only grow on top of the 600 to 1,000-year-old lava flows of Hawaii, and the scientists, John C. Holliday and Noah Soule, describe it as particularly difficult to find. 153554b96e
