    Oh man, awesome! One of my favorites! Ever try making a Japanese dish called Matsutake Gohan (rice)?

    No I haven't. Currently being on Maui, the seasons are kinda messed up for me. I was surprise to find that persimmons are grown up at higher elevation.

    Yeah, Probably not an athentic Japanese recipe but with larger opened Matsutakes, I chop them into tiny pieces and mix with washed rice and cook it in pressure cooker. Season with light soy based sauce and sesame oil. Amazing aroma for sure.

    We also had a hackberry tree in the yard that produced small but delicious berries. I've read that our Native Americans loved them and used them to flavor foods.

    Lot of hackberry around these parts but mostly big trees with no berries. Hmm. :idea:

    Apple season on the mountain here! Apple trees everywhere, at least a dozen trees on the .4 mile route to work. Not sure of the exact varieties they are, but delicious none the less.

    I grew up at the foot of small mountain where there were few apple trees but lots of crab apple trees. They can cause stomach cramps but we ate them anyway preferably with a sprinkle of salt. They were best made into crab apple jelly.

    Never tried any mind altering plants and mushrooms, but every time I see a beautiful glowing red Amanitas in the woods, they do make me wonder what might happen if I eat 'em.

    I've never tried Amanita muscaria. I've been told to parboil it first and dump the liquid. It is toxic. But that may remove the high.
    I've tried psilocybin and that's stuff is fun. They were picked form fields at UW.

    Maui used to have wild Mountain Apples. Pear shaped, white, rosy, and juicy sweet flesh. I haven't seen any in awhile.

    I read somewhere some of the native Americans used to have the shaman process those red mushrooms and he'd neutralize the poison. Then all you had to do to get high was...drink his pee.
