Prized fungi

exotic mushrooms


Perry Nastiuk showed off just a fraction of the true morel mushrooms he recently found within town limits. Nastiuk said the edible mushrooms grow near dead and dying trees, such as poplar, alder, and trembling aspen. He added morel mushrooms, which fetch anywhere from $20-$50 a pound in major centres like Toronto, are an “epicurean’s delight.”
