Mushrooms are wonderful when sauteed.

Eating them raw... your mileage may vary. Some of them are unsafe to consume raw (well, most varieties are unsafe that way).

(I used to hunt for wild mushrooms in the dark and dangerous parts of the North Carolina mountains)

There are parts of the NC moutains that aren't dark and dangerous? :)

I was referring to run-of-the-mill button mushrooms. They're safe enough raw.

I had a friend with an interest in mycology, and it kind caught my attention.

I have tried some boletes (these are really slimy when you prepare them... not my favorite edible wild mushroom), sulfur shelf (also known as 'chicken') mushrooms (these are really tasty), wild field mushrooms (they taste like the button mushrooms, but concentrated), and I think some other kind that I can't recall.

I had a chance to try a certain kind of horn mushroom, but I didn't recognize it, so I played it conservative... you simply don't eat a mushroom if you can't identify it.

Yes, wild mushrooms can kill you if you eat the wrong ones. Buying at a regular supermarket vastly reduces such risks.

It does, but you miss out on some interesting flavors.

Sulfur shelf mushrooms do not sell in stores, but taste quite nice when sauteed in some butter.

Many things taste quite nice when sauteed in some butter.

This is true.

Have you tried sauteeing dog snot in butter? I'm told it makes all the difference.

There are places where that is considered a delicacy.

I'll have to try that...

note - I said MANY things.

eg, most veggies (cucumbers and lettuce excepted), bread, pasta, potatoes,

eggs (of course), grilled cheese sandwiches,  

I've been told some meats are good sauted in butter.

basically, almost any savory food  and many sweet foods can be improved by a saute'ing in butter 

if it ain't food, don't waste buttery love on it.

I've been thinking about all this talk about butter. It's been going on for days and I started to wonder if I have any butter in the house. I checked the fridge and I do. But it's exceedingly old. Then it occured to me that this was something I might have taken notice of earlier if I ever cooked my own food.

I'm 3 decades old now. Maybe it's time I learn to cook..


Side question. I'm sitting here eating a lemon. And it tastes sweet. Can lemons turn sweet if they sit around too long?

doubtful, but they do have some natural fruit sugar in them.

It's not entirely true I don't cook. I cook my own breakfast occasionally. Oatmeal. Doesn't need butter in it.
Now butter is actually just fat. While fat tastes good, what is with all the love? Well? A lot of things taste good. Lemons, for example.

The large lemons are kinda sweet. Not as sweet as an orange, though my grandmother used to eat them like oranges.

(NOTE: I'm actually quoting someone who used to frequent this board a lot... the quote 'butter is love' is not necessarily my own, but provides an inside joke for folks who know what I'm talking about).

Fat is flavor. Butter is love.
