      Mushroom Foraging Bonanza in East Hampton

      One of the most common of edible mushrooms on the East End is chicken of the woods. A beautiful specimen–a bright yellow and orange cluster–was found by Leigh Merinoff, the sister of EEE’s photo editor Lindsay Morris in the Northwest Woods section of East Hampton. The two then sliced, dried and stored the specimen for soups, salads and pastas.
