How can you tell a mushroom is poisonous?
Mushrooms with white gills are often poisonous. So are those with a ring around the stem and those with a volva. Because the volva is often underground, it’s important to dig around the base of a mushroom to look for it. Mushrooms with a red color on the cap or stem are also either poisonous or strongly hallucinogenic.
Are mushroom stems OK to eat?
Generally, yes, mushroom stems are edible. With smaller shiitake mushrooms, it is easy to just pull of the stem to separate it from the cap. With larger skiitake mushrooms, pulling off the stem sometimes damages the cap — either the cap breaks or a chunk of the soft flesh comes off with the stem.
How can you tell if a mushroom is poisonous or edible?
Avoid mushrooms with white gills, a skirt or ring on the stem and a bulbous or sack-like base called a volva. You may be missing out on some good edible fungi but it means you will be avoiding the deadly members of the Amanita family. Avoid mushrooms with red on the cap or stem.

What happens if you eat shiitake mushroom stems?
The stems of shiitake mushrooms are too fibrous to eat, but they still pack a lot of flavor. Just a few stems can infuse a broth with rich flavors and earthy aromas. The stems are especially good in vegetable and broth-based soups (as opposed to thick stews).
