Jeremy:
I came across this ling skull while mushroom picking at Salt Point yesterday.

It was about .75 mi from the water and 450 ft alt.

I'm guessing a large raptor or vulture jacked it at a fish cleaning station or campground.

To remain on topic, here's also a pic of a cauliflower mushroom that my wife found.

Jeremy:
Nice ones!

This was my first time eating cauliflower mushroom. I poached it in cream and seasoned it with salt and white pepper. Very savory. Will try it in a soup next time!

Cauliflower mushrooms work really well with potato preparations, such as scalloped or au gratin.  Also, with richer versions of mac & cheese (meaning not out of a box).

Either way, cook the mushrooms up a bit first in a saute pan.  Then, add the other dish as part of their normal preparation.

The hardest part of dealing with them is cleaning, but they are worth the effort.

Yea, cleaning was difficult since it can't be brushed. I held it down in that metal bowl while swirling it in shallow water, which I changed many times. I might try cleaning it with a spray bottle next time.

Thanks for the cooking tips!

Was it packed with dirt or something? Mine was sparkly all except for the bottom which I cut off. The rest I cut into chunks and ran water over while in a colander but there was no dirt really.

I can't remember what it looked like when my wife first found it. I think some of the dirt might have been transferred from other mushrooms in the basket. I didn't have any way of isolating it. Packing paper bags next time.
