A Local Delicacy, Oyster Mushrooms Are Popping Up In Woods Across Southern California

During the rainy season and heading into spring, wild mushrooms start popping up around Southern California. Now, keep in mind that mushrooms thrive in a moist climate, so the more rain the better. One favorite mushroom to forage is the oyster mushroom, which has a mild, meaty texture and goes well in vegetarian dishes. While they may be hard to find in the drier parts of California, these mushrooms are worth the hunt.
