Holy cow, that's impressive. Haven't ever tried them, only found a couple.thats a cool coral shroom. ive only found tiny ones.
when sun came up on the deer stand yesterday i spotted a bit of yellow. turned out to be the motherload of super fresh chickens!! View attachment 18994
had a few friends over to help gobble them up by the fire last night. there is about 15pounds more i have to take ladder back n get today before the rain. august was a banner year for my oyster and chanterelle pickin. october starting out to be 100+ pound of chicken year! stands at 60# for day 1 lmao
Yea, somewhat leary of yards, this tree was at the edge of a woods. I wasn't sure about how to cut it up, but you are correct, it got tough towards the back, the rest is cut up and ready to go.id stay away from yards unless they do not treat it at all. the ones in woods should be safer.
when you trim it off let knife tell you how far back to go. it will get tuff and disappointing if you try and use too much of it. take a tender pedal off, break it with the grain and toss it in skillet with some butter salt n pepper. endless ways to use it.
congrats on the start of enjoying chicken of the woods every year. i have turned 3 people onto them this year. most everyone else ive shown still harvests them. i even get shared bounty from some of them! and back their way too of course.
Yea, liquify you liver once and it's over.I have seen a lot of mushrooms popping up in the woods lately but there is no way I would attempt to eat them. It only takes one mistake.
