    Man those tiny ones are the prime for sautéed IMO. Some great fresh young ones on those trees.

    Finally got back into the woods for the 1st time in the past month. Saw oysters on several trees with most being past prime or too old to eat. I did find 1 tree with monster fresh ones totaling a little over a pound.

    All this rain, mixed with or followed by a good cold spell, can keep the oysters coming for a bit longer. That is a big oyster that Recurve pictured. I personally like the smaller fresh whitish ones for sautéed and eating. But those big ones will eat too.

    Got out today for 2 hours shed and oyster shroom hunting. No sheds but I did find a bunch of oysters all on dead ash trees. Unfortunately, most of them were way too far along. Was able to pick another 1/2 lb of very fresh ones and made a big pot of cream of oyster soup.

    Don't give up yet! Just found these in my in-laws' yard Wednesday. Fixed them up with some fresh sausage, rice, onions, and butter.

    I checked again yesterday and found a few fresh oysters but most of the ones I founds were old. Any fresh shrooms after the recent rain will be hard as a rock today.
