In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, mushrooms appear around your trees during the fall.

Northern Hemisphere players will find mushrooms for the entire month of November and Southern Hemisphere players will spot the fungus throughout May.

You can only find mushroom-based recipes during this time period. You’ll have to shoot down balloons with your Slingshot to find them. If you don’t grab all the recipes before the mushrooms stop growing, you’ll have to wait until next year, time travel, or ask your buddies to help you craft.

The mushrooms you’ll need for the recipes will spawn around Hardwood Trees. Most will be visible on the ground, but Rare Mushrooms will appear underground around these trees, indicated with the usual star-shaped digging spot.

You can check out a list of the items you can get below, along with the recipes you need to make them.
