Fortunately, you don’t need to be a bona fide mycologist to forage for mushrooms – but you do need to know the difference between species. More specifically, knowing which mushrooms are not edible proves to be the most helpful skill. In South Carolina, two of the world’s most dangerous mushrooms grow practically side by side. Yet the two are very different in their make up.
