Shaggy Mane Mushrooms

With all the rain we have had lately, you might see these mushrooms cropping up along the roadsides. Shaggy Mane (Coprinus comatus) mushrooms are one of Maine's edible mushrooms, and these cool and wet days are perfect conditions for them to grow. In late summer and fall, they grow fast and deteriorate faster so don't hesitate if you plan on trying these beauties. Like with all mushrooms, you must be absolutely sure about your identification before eating! But for those that feel confident, they say that they go well with meat. Read more about Shaggy Manes here and here.
