A little birdie just told me that if they show up on their own in a garden without being introduced, it counts as foraged.
"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
Hello, I made a dandelion salad. I started by foraging a cup of wild dandelion leaves. I also foraged some clover leaves/flowers and mock strawberry leaves to counteract the bitterness of the dandelion. I added a few shreds of red malabar spinach and purslane from my garden, then dressed it with a chocolate vinagrette (chocolate almond milk, olive oil, seasoned rice vinegar, and a dash or seasoned salt). If I were not meeting the specs of this BB, I would probably do half a cup of dandelion and half a cup of clover to even the bitterness out.
It's Hen in the Woods, kin to Chicken in the Woods but not as colorful. I harvested some to saute for dinner. Happily, I had just looked over the requirements for the foraging badge, so I remembered to take pictures for this BB!

We ate it as a side dish. Very tasty.
You're much braver than I am. I see mushrooms and evaluate it something like this: is it a mushroom? Yes. Run away!
Anyway, assuming I did ever forage this hen of the woods, does it release moisture the same way button mushrooms do?
