"There are old mushroom hunters, and bold mushroom hunters, but no old, bold mushroom hunters."

Avoid pure white mushrooms, little (and large) brown mushrooms, red- or pink-pored boletes (Boletus species), and all decomposing mushrooms.

Cook all wild mushrooms. Cooking does not inactivate all mushroom toxins, and even edible mushrooms, if allowed to age or deteriorate, may become toxic.

Select mushrooms at the grocery, not in the woods.
