Hericium

Was checking a few of my hen trees this week and came across this beauty. Hadn't found one in 15 years of mushroom hunting now the last 2 years I've stumbled across them. Unique and tasty.

Re: Hericium

Nice! Been a great season for them . I've already found more than the last 5 years put together. I love their seafood taste.

Picked just a couple this year. I LOVE these mushrooms. They soak up water like a sponge though. I found that you can wring the water out after you wash the dirt off. How come I can't ever find a clean mushroom?

Re: Hericium

I don't let them hit water. Just tear apart & use a toothpick to pick out the dirt specks. I'm cleaning hens now the same way, tedious but worth it.

Re: Hericium

I find most mushrooms can withstand the spray from the faucet just fine. I use a tooth brush and scrub my hens. They don't have to look pretty cuz I cut them up so small and put them in soup. Someone said hens get slimy in water but I've never had that experience.

The hens that are near perfect get separated and dehydrated without a washing. I wonder how many dogs have peed on those hens. *lol*

I'm hoping to find some hericium today. Probably will wash those too. Unless they are higher on a tree where they don't receive the back splash from the rain.
