    Slice and sauté in A little butter and olive oil on cast iron. Pinch of garlic and salt. If it’s your first one go slow. Some folks get an upset stomach from them.

    Cut in 1/8 in thick cracker sized slices, Saute in butter, salt and pepper. You can also perhaps sell it to a high dollar restaurant if you want , maybe 15-20$ a pound. Highly desirable for fine chefs. Google it.

    Then id be especially careful. Some people cant stomach them. An allergy perhaps.

    What's the odds of them coming back on the same tree the next year? I'll be keeping my eyes open from now on. The one I found last year was last part of rifle season IIRC. I thought it was a deer's arse at first is how I spotted it thru the woods at 75yds or so haha. They rank right under morels in my book for taste&texture just sauteed in butter.

    In spite the fact that I try to leave as much fungus base on the tree as possible when removing the things, I have not found them on the same trees again .

    I found one growing on a dying maple 2 years ago and it produced again last year. Since then the tree has died and broke in half and it hasn’t produced this year yet.

    Well I’m still alive and I’ll say that is the best mushroom iv ever had. Me and my wife loved it. I’m afraid of morels but these tend to be settling good.
