Re: Hey Kids

Barb,
I use the tender parts for eating, and for the tougher center that don't cook up well for eating, I dice real fine
(1/8th inch pieces) and then cook in a sauce pan with a little water for about 15 minutes. Let the water evaporate during cooking until they are almost dry, but not quite.

Now you have Hen duxcell to be used in sauces, gravies, rubs, and stuffing for meats. Great stuff! Even Debbie will eat muchrooms this way.
