Those are Dryad's Saddles, or Pheasant's Back, as some call them.

The young ones are tender and edible, but they get pretty tough as they get bigger.

(They also smell like watermelon rind when cut!)

One of the prettier shrooms, IMHO...

Chris those are Yummy to My tummy. Search old posts and see the different opinions. to me Tammy they smell like cucumbers, but hold a great flavor/marinade when sauteed. Chewy (which I like) versatile when cut in a variety of ways...Very thin strips, cubed, butterflied/stuffed then wrapped/toothed picked with bacon...Try a little first, If you like them experiment!!. They make a great dried winter soup addition to root vegetables. Many of my friends do not like them at all, sigh...maybe its because I keep making up new dishes and forcing them to eat a bit...But they are still my friends

There is a wonderful jambalaya recipe in the recipes section here for the Dryad's Saddle.

As far as toughness, if I can easily break them with my fingers, they are tender enough to eat. My experience is that under 4 inches diameter is OK. Much bigger and they need a lot of slow cooking to soften up.

The key to cooking these is slow cooking: soups, stews and such. Do not attempt to sautee unless you like chewing on shoe leather.
