  1. Fred, wondrously, it’s called dryad’s saddle
    and it’s delicious. Had my first last fall, when I picked a gigantic one.
    if they’re large they can be tough, cook only the tenderer outer edges.
    last fall, having moved to rural Driftless Area wisconsin, I also picked
    2 hen of the woods (maitake) mushrooms for a total o f 9.5 pounds.
    now that is totally delicious. I still have some in the freezer.

  2. Thanks so much. This log has a long fungal life ahead, and it is not far from our regular walk around the place, so we’ll keep an eye on it for future consumption.

  3. synchronistically, I found a large one
    this morning

    they, like maitakes, regrow several years in the same place

    now if only I could find some morels!
