  1. I fried this up for lunch, shared by five of us. Nice texture and flavor. 3 people really liked it but two of us, including me, found it slightly bitter. Perhaps parboiling would remove the bitterness? Not as good as pleurotis but I'll try it again.
  2. Thanks Dave. Is it a good edible?
  3. Growing on red maple. Mild earthy odor, similar taste. I want it to be an oyster mushroom but I don't think it is. What do you guys think?
  4. The logs were long dead and decayed to the point where the tree species was unrecognizable.
  5. I was checking a patch of woods at work yesterday where I like to look for mushrooms. There's a huge old oak log where I've seen chickens before and sure enough, there had been a recent flush. But someone got to it before me and took almost all of them. Then I noticed a nearby log with a small piece chicken mushroom on it...and another, and another, and another. Someone is clearly trying to propagate chickens this way. I'll surely be keeping my eyes on these logs in the future to see if it works. In the meantime, does anyone know if this can be an effective method?
  6. Hello everyone, I'm brand new here so I'll start by introducing myself. I've lived in northeast Pennsylvania most of my life and I've had some interest in mushrooms since I was a kid. First wild mushroom I ever ate was Grifola Frondosa when I was 13. My friend and I found it while roaming the woods and his Mom cooked it up for us. My interest has grown slowly ever since but has picked up steam more and more as I've learned. In addition to foraging, I have about 60 shiitake logs and plan to add more and probably some oyster mushroom logs this winter. This spring I found the Wyoming Valley Mushroom Club and promptly joined with my wife and daughter. Going on monthly club forays with Dave W and the other members has been incredibly informative and enjoyable. I've been lurking here for a couple weeks since Dave W introduced me to the forum and I thought it would be good to join in the conversation. Joe T
