Re: Got 3 more Hens

Well this rain done it! I got three more Hens! I thought that two more that popped just yesterday were mCauliflowers, because they were growing directly on the stump itself...the same stump that the rest of the Hens are on (+) two more new ones popped after the rain. Upon closer examination, yup they are underdeveloped Hens...but has anybody ever found any hens ON dead wood?

Question Re: In search of hens

Not that I have found one yet (YET) but what do you do with your hens? Saute in butter?? Dry and use in soups??

Thanks!

Re: In search of hens

Hi DQ,
Well, the ones I don't give away I cook 50% in butter/olive oil , sqeeze them in between paper towels (to get most of the cooking wetness out) then put them in vacuum bags and freeze for the times where there ain't any more 'shrooms.
I do the same with ALL the 'shrooms I gather, but I don't give away Chants or Morels.

Yes, they do grow on the wood, or up the stump, not always on the ground,mike

Re: Pure White Upsidedown Hen

I found this Pure White Hen upsidedown on a rotten root of a 30' long downed bare Oak Tree. I just touched it and it came off in my hand.
It weighs 1 1/2 pounds...yum! The hen on the left is the white one's sister found last week on the same spot.

Re: In search of hens

when you find a hen leave a small piece of it when you cut it and usually it will regrow form the piece you left and they will also grow on the same tree year after year so remember where you find them. I have one tree (a live one) that I have been cutting hens from for at least 15 yrs and this year when I went to it there were 12 hens of assorted sizes around it biggest was size of basketball was like hitting the jackpot...lol I also find them on a dead stump with a hole in center some grow around the stump and some from inside the hole so far this year I have cut 3 from it and going to check it again tonight.
