Puck Plenty Foraging: Fall Oysters
Unlike its Summer counterpart the Fall Oyster is quite meaty and manages to cling to dead hardwood for weeks. These Oysters come in three colours, metalic grey, yellow/tan and, believe it or not, olive green. Because they arrive so late in the season they have no real invaders. No worms, no bugs. Another great mushroom for soups, stews and risotto. We find these growing in well shaded hardwood forests right here in Stratford and also on the Avon Trail. We will also be foraging for Wild Watercress and Wood Sorrel along with other mushrooms such as Velevet Foots, Fawns, Lepista Irinas and Gem Studded Puffballs.
Start time: 10:00 am
Where: Stratford area.
