Big tree mushroom
    #11392121 - 11/05/09 06:29 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

Okay, so my buddy was out hunting and found these growing on the side of a tree.  He broke them off and brought them back.  He knew I "liked mushrooms" so he asked me what they were.  I told him I didn't have any idea but I'd post some pictures up and if anyone knew it'd be ya'll. 


They are at least thirty pounds each and at least two feet in length and width.

Also, since they are already broke off, he wants to preserve them.  Any ideas on the best way to do so?

Thanks ya'll sorry for the strange post










The big double one is fifty pounds easily

Unless you cut them open and they're red and squidgy inside...

The best way to preserve those will be to dry them. If they're wood-like then that shouldn't be too hard. If they're waterlogged then you have a problem.

Once you think you have them dried, you'll need to freeze them in a freezer for a few weeks to kill any insect larvae or eggs. If you leave out this step then they'll look OK at first, but at some point in the future you'll discover tiny black beetles chewing them up.

Happy mushrooming!

This is good advice. It is annoying as hell when your mushrooms get eaten by those little critters. Now I dry AND freeze. It did annoy my roommate a bit cuz the freezer's filled with mushrooms, but then I cooked some mushroom paella for him and gave his mom some nice G. frondosa finds, and he quieted down.

You have an Inonotus.  Maybe Inonotus dryadeus.
