Anybody know what this mushroom is and is it edible
Time to get the batter and grease out.
What's it called
I think it oyster mushroom. But don’t take my word for it!
Definitely not an oyster but I don’t recognize this one in the pic.
Ain’t that a hen, or chicken or something of the woods?
Been told it was a cauliflower mushroom but I still aint 100% so I'm saying it's just gonna stay in the woods
Sparassis Spathulata, I think it’s also called cauliflower mushroom and is a choice edible. I posted it to the Kentucky mycology group on Facebook and they agreed.

Dammit! This post is 1st damn thing I have ever read that makes me want to join Facebook.
I never trusted peoples opinions on what is, and is not edible in mushrooms. I know a local authority on survivalist techniques recomends just rule out mushrooms, their nutritional value is so low its not worth the risk. Even edible varieties can become toxic depending on the host material they are growing on.
Cool find! Never saw one of those
I’m far from an expert in fact I know next to nothing. With that said if a fungus like that is growing off wood you’re pretty gold. It’s the actual mushrooms you gotta watch out for more than these type of funguses. Now that’s just me spitballing there.
This thing is growing about 2 feet away from the base of a still standing but nearly rotted oak
That looks like it for certain. I been researching all I can and actually been thinking bout trying it. I mean worst that could happen would be death lmao
Lol, I’d find a cauliflower mushroom recipe I liked and eat that sucker with confidence. Sauté up a little bit in some oil with some onions first to see if it bothers your stomach maybe but we just don’t have any poisonous fungi in the state like that anyway.
