General Information: You could load a truck with amount of honey mushrooms around here this year.When i was a kid some older italian gentlemen would drive down from the city and bring us homemade bread and wine in exchange for permission to hunt my fathers property.They would come back with bushel baskets full.I always wondered what they would do with so many.Sadly they are probably deceased by now they would have been amazed by this years flush!

General Information: What on earth are these. Three books & 1.5 hrs of research on line later, all I can figure is that they are hydnum. They look like sweet tooth but they are tan-gray instead of yellow gray and their teeth are light gray. They sometimes bruise a slight blue when cut. Found on mounds in somewhat boggy terrain. Find them every year and can never id. them.
