There are no easy way how to identify if a mushroom is poisonous or not!
Some of the old wives tales are:
Poisonous mushrooms turn a silver spoon or silver coins black? NO!!
If eaten by animals, the mushroom is safe? NO!!
If it smells and tastes good, it is safe? NO!!
If the mushroom peels easily it is safe? NO!!
