We tried Chicken of the Woods mushrooms for the first time. We started out harvesting them for our mechanic who told us his family loved them. We kept a small portion of our find to try for ourselves.
We ended up with 23 pounds. We went and showed them to a few older neighbors who would have knowledge about the mushrooms. We learned from one of them how to fix these mushrooms. I am not a huge mushroom fan. I will eat a few morels in the spring, but that is about it. I read that we should only eat a small portion because Chicken of the Woods can bother some people. I cleaned the small portion that we kept and dipped it in milk and egg then floured it for frying. I have to say I thought they were delicious. They did not to seem to bother either one of us. I will be trying more in the future.
