Welcome to this weeks Seasonal Sunday featuring Summer Ingredients!
And a Happy Almost 4th I imagine there will be some festive dishes linked up today.
This week I would like to highlight the following recipes:
Today I'm sharing 2 recipes.
Guidelines for Linking:
- Recipes must contain one Seasonal Ingredient (See below for the list of foods that are currently in season)
- You may link up old or new recipes. Wonderful food is always worth sharing! Feel free to share up to 6 recipes each week.
- Gluten Free Recipes are NOT required- this event is meant to inspire ideas for all. However I do ask that if your recipe is Gluten Free that you give it the “GF” Label.
- Please include a link in your blog in reference to Seasonal Sundays so that your readers may also participate.

A fellow blogger and friend (Charles Luce) mentioned to me that I had missed some mushroom varieties. He knows mushrooms extensively and provided me with this fun list that I thought I would share for fun! Thank you Charles for putting this together:
NOTE; DO NOT EAT ANY MUSHROOM UNLESS YOU CAN IDENTIFY IT WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY. MANY OF THE MUSHROOMS BELOW HAVE TOXIC “LOOK ALIKES”. SOME OF WHICH ARE DEADLY!!!
Chanterelles – smooth, ribbed, and cinnabar.
Black trumpet (actually members of the chanterelle family)
Boletes - many. Common edibles are: bicolor, varipes, badiceps and, if weather turns cool in August, the cepe or porcini
Suillis - related to boletes.
Agaricus (in cooler weather) including meadow mushrooms, Horse Mushrooms and The Prince. (Use extreme caution. There are deadly amanita that look very much like agaricus)
Chicken or Sulfur Shelf
Sweet tooth – two varieties –pied de mouton and orange
Beefsteak mushroom (one of the few that can be eaten raw)
Bear tooth 2 varieties
Lobster mushroom (actually a mushroom that grows on a mushroom)
Milky – many species (Good even though my wife says that one of my favorites, Lacteri currugium, smells like dog food.)
Aborted entoloma (good despite the awful name)
Parasol (lepiota)Use extreme caution with this one. Some lepiotas are deadly.
Puffballs including the giant puffball. (again use extreme caution. Partially sprouted deadly amanita look a lot like puffballs)
Have a wonderful Sunday Everyone!
