    Man, that looks delicious, got my mouth watering over here. I was never taught how to eat or identify these type of mushrooms, only dry land fish. I guess that explains why I never look for them. Gonna have to start. I've been missing out.

    I agree with Carnivore....I would pass on those. Look for really white ones and smaller the better for fresh. Once the edges turn under and get brownish I would not be eating those.

    Thanks to these pics I’m pretty sure I found a big batch on a dead ash yesterday. Didn’t eat them because I wasn’t 100% sure, but didn’t have the turned under edges like these. Almost white with a light tan/brown on tops.

    I found some older pics that can help with id. The tops might be grayish brown rather than this white.

    Shame I found them so late, I bet I could have picked 20 lbs.

    Same stumps likely make several flushes. If not keep checking a few days after rain.

    Gave dad a little bag of super fresh small ones yesterday. I could have given them a few days to grow but they are so good and i have plenty for now. 53DD7D1D-C322-474F-8A3B-1C509676C4DF.jpeg

    8D46046C-6763-4E07-96BC-2D222E33D457.jpeg Found these this morning while walking down the driveway to the mailbox. They were growing on a tiny 5 inch stump that was barely above ground level. E5D25417-E48A-4470-85CB-7F2274EFE6D1.jpeg

    Grilled venison backstraps wrapped in bacon topped with sautéed oyster shrooms are on the menu tonight.

    Walked out behind the workshop this morning to pour a little corn 25 yards behind my workshop. My feeder is 40 yards from the workshop and I plan to hunt out of the back window the next couple of cold days with my crossbow and my Little Buddy heater running. These oysters were on a fallen ash log hidden from
    my usual path to my feeder camera. 1 lb of frozen so I will cook them today and see how they do.

    Yes but the edges show a little roughness with is usually an indication that they may be slightly old but possibly edible. They usually start to get a little buggy after being there a few days.
