Cortinarius zinziberatus (Copper Cort - medicinal, mitochondrial balancer, must be cooked well) $85

Paxillus involutus (Pungent Funnel - use sparingly has strong flavor, cook well or pressure cook, edible when properly cooked, medicinal properties) $35 This mushroom was safely consumed for generations, and enjoyed when properly cooked. It can cause severe illness when undercooked. It was traditionally parboiled, with the water discarded, and then it was re-cooked in whatever dish it was used in. It was typically used in soups or sauces, and not as an entree itself.

Paxillus vernalis (Summer Funnel - use sparingly, cook well or lightly pressure cook, edible when properly cooked, medicinal properties) $35 This mushroom was safely consumed for generations, and enjoyed when properly cooked. There is dispute as to whether it can cause severe illness when undercooked - all documented cases of illness from Paxillus mushrooms were Paxillus involutus. It was traditionally parboiled or soaked in warm water with a little salt for a few hours, with the water discarded, and then it was cooked in whatever dish it was used in. It was typically used in soups or sauces, and not as an entree itself. This is a large and meaty mushroom that grows profusely when well established.

Polyporus melanopus (Freckled Funnel - pressure cook, chop fine or grind) $35 Good mushroom to grind for seasoning.

Catathelasma imperiale (Imperial Cat - cook well) $95 (rare) Excellent mushroom when cooked well, this rare and lovely mushroom is available nowhere else!

Leccinum scabrum (Birch bolete) $75

Lentinus tigrinus (Little Shiitake) $55 MISIDENTIFIED IN GUIDE BOOKS (This mushroom IS a LENTINUS, it is NOT a Neolentinus, and it IS what Lentinus tigrinus was ORIGINALLY described as - current descriptions and photos are WRONG, someone got the wrong mushroom and renamed it because it did not fit the genus anymore. Pictures in guide books are NOT of this mushroom, hence the confusion. Guide books and internet pics and descriptions are NOT of Lentinus tigrinus, they are Neolentinus lepideus - the Train Wrecker, which is very white when young, and has scales that darken to gray or black as it ages. Neolentinus species are convoluted, with a very definite indent in the center of the cap, whereas Lentinus species are NOT indented, but flat on the top, with a distinctive shape to the cap edge. Lentinus tigrinus is a Shiitake type mushroom that is more delicate, a little smaller and thinner in the cap, and a brown-gray, to bronzy silver color with a small amount of scales. The cap edge and gills are folded in the same manner as a Shiitake when the cap is not fully unfurled.) What we have is TRUE Little Shiitake mushroom. Grows under conifers, in thick duff.

Boletus rubriceps (Rocky Mountain Red King, cook well) $85 (This species is a delicious edible, it dries and cans VERY well. The cap is very red (brick to burgundy) with a distinct tan to yellow margin (about 1/4" wide). Stipe is full, and finely to deeply reticulated, and occasionally has a little reddish blush. Pores are tan to olive brown (darker with age), and the pore surface on younger specimens WILL very slowly AGE to a pinkish red color after the mushroom is picked. It is NOT a rapid red stainer, and we have eaten it many times. Cook well, and there is no risk with this one (aside from allergies, which are an issue with all mushrooms for SOME people). Fine Porcini flavor, grows under pines.

Tricholoma muricatum (Grubby Knight - cook well at high heat) $65

Flammulina populicola (Aspen Enoki - cook lightly) $95 Edible cousin to Enoki, pale yellow cap, with a white to yellow stipe. Grows under deciduous trees.

Flammulina velutipes (Velvet Foot, Wild variety) $95 This is Enoki, in the wild variety. Sticky yellow/tan cap, with a distinct velvety appearing stipe which is dark brown to black at the base, and fades to tan/yellow at the top. White gills and spores. Grows on deciduous wood, and appears on the ground around old stumps.

Pholiota multifolia (Orange Folly - pressure cook) $45 Limited quantities.

Pholiota adiposa (Fatty Pholiota - cook well) $65 Grows well on most deciduous trees.

Clitocybe gibba (Common Funnel, same species as Lepista flaccida, Lepista inversa, Lepista subalpina, cook well) $65 Grows profusely, on rotted wood. This is kind of small mushroom, but fruits prolifically, so you can usually get enough to do something with.

Leucocoprinus cepistipes (Fairy Parasol, cook well) $45

Lepista irina (White Blewit, must be cooked) $85

Lepista persici (Peach Blewit, stains bright orange, must be cooked) $95 Lovely peach colored mushroom with a distinctively Blewity shape.

Hypholoma lateritium (Brick Top, cook well) $65

Amanita aprica (Cook well after 1 parboil) $95

Amanita muscaria (Parboil 15 minutes in LOT of water, drain, parboil again 5 minutes, fry in butter) $120 Found growing under conifers, but reputedly not picky. This mushroom is used by stupid people who think you can use it to get high without suffering nasty side effects. You can't. Ever. Really. Ok, go ahead and try it if you don't mind vomiting and bleeding from your bowels. The toxin that makes you stomach crampingly sick usually won't kill you (though it can), but it always makes you sick enough that you wish it had! You just cannot get enough of the hallucinogenic compounds into you without also taking a massive load of the stuff that makes you vomit and groan and writhe in pain - because the thing that gets you high is the very thing that makes you sick! And it will make you sick BEFORE it gets you high! So don't bother! Instead, parboil the sucker, and fry it in butter. In spite of recent controversy (based on contemporary information, not on traditional and historic information), this mushroom HAS been consumed safely as an edible (especially during hard times) by peoples around the world, for millenia. We have just forgotten that some mushrooms need to be parboiled prior to cooking them in your recipe. This mushroom fruits gregariously once established, and the mushrooms can get quite large, with buttons that are 2-4" across.

Suillus pseudobrevipe (Orange Suillus) $75

Suillus americanus (Chicken Fat Suillus) $105 Yellow cap with red streaks and dots around the edges. This mushroom does not need peeled prior to consumption, but does need to be cooked. This is a slower staining strain, it is likely that it crossed with Suillus luteus (both are edible). Grows under pines in thick needle duff.

Boletus auripes (Butter Bolete) $95 (Very limited quantities)

Boletus barrowsii (White King) $125 (Limited quantities) A choice bolete mushroom, found under aspen trees in the Rocky Mountains.

Hygrophorus Pudorinus - (Tan Waxy Cap, cook well) $45

Pluteus petasatus - (A white to buff pluteus, must be cooked) $65

Pluteus admirabilis - (Yellow Pluteus, must be cooked) $95 Bright yellow pluteus species that has neuroregenerative medicinal benefits, as well as being considered to be a good edible. Found under aspens.

Pluteus cervinus - Classic Deer Mushroom $65 (Limited quantities) Brown mushroom with wrinkled umbo, and pink gills, this mushroom is unmistakeable once you've held it in your hands. Loves dead wood in the shade.

Agaricus augustus - The Prince $120 Classically lovely almond smell, this large agaricus mushroom is prized for both size and usefulness.

Agaricus smithii - The Princess $65 Intense almond smell when fresh, this is the cousin to the Prince, and is somewhat smaller in size, with the same cap color.

Agaricus bernardii - Salt Loving Agaricus $55 White button mushroom that grows well in alkaline soils.

Agaricus abolutescens - Conifer Buttom $55 White button mushroom that grows well under conifers.

Calocybe indica var. dixie - Mini Milky $85 Smaller variety of the large tropical mushroom Calocybe Indica, which is known as the Milky Mushroom. Tropical specimens are massive, this strain is smaller, and grows in cooler climates. Discovered in the Dixie National Forest, it is always small specimens, because the deer eat it before it gets very large. It grows under pines in deep needle litter.

Ramaria aurea (Yellow Coral) $45 Compact branching coral mushroom that ranges in color from tan to ochre to bright yellow, depending on environment. Grows under most forests.

Coprinopsis atramentaria (Tippler's Bane) $40

Lepista personata (Field Blewit) $59

Cerioporus squamosus (Polyporus squamosus, Dryad's Saddle) $59

Neolentinus ponderosus (Giant Sawgill) $89 Neuroregenerative, grows on pines. A very large and meaty mushroom, and a good edible.

Ganoderma resinaceum (Resinous Reishi) $45 Used as an alternate for Reishi medicinally.

Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) $30
