    I was afraid to eat them too last year when I first saw them…however a year has passed and I now belong to a mycology club and being among them with their great entusiasm caused me to give it a try. If you get a chance, collect some when they are young and tender. They’re used in receipes in place of chicken. I tried it and I’m hooked. One caution…some people are sensitive to this mushroom, so try only a small amount the first time. Aslo, only collect what you find growing on oaks…not conifers

  • Thank you , Rusty ! It is interesting and tempting! When possible I will try it and let you know. :)
