Never found one of those yet Brian. I'm curious tho, cause they tend to prefer oaks like the hens.

Did you eat it, and what was your opinion?

From what I've read, it pays to collect young specimens like you have to do with many shrooms. Otherwise, just cut the edges off and use that.

Does it taste like steak or liver? LOL
See Wildman Steve Brill comments.

According to Audubon's Guide to N American Mushrooms, it is a good edible. When young, it feels and tastes like beef liver, which I don't really care for.

I like liver just fine, but I doubt very much if I want my mushrooms tasting like it. What would you use them with? LOL Liver is not usually a complimentary flavor to side dishes.

I like them. I don't think it tastes like liver...more like beef, IMO.

I cut the most tender fronds into long strips. They are very good as an ingredient in stir fries or in soups.

If I had a good sweet/sour Chinese soup recipe, I would gladly use black stainer.

But I would also not handle it without gloves. Your fingers will turn brown/black for a week or two.
