I Ate An Oyster!
    #1587005 - 05/29/03 01:27 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

On a hike through the woods this afternoon, I found a small patch of oysters growing on some dead logs.  I chose one prize specimen, brought it home with me, and just a few minutes ago I cooked it up and ate it! :laugh:

I took a spore print of the mushroom before consuming it just to make sure I had the right kind, and it turned out white just like the book said it would!  Having been vegetarian for over 2 years now, it was the closest I have come to eating any sort of seafood in a long time! :smile: 

To prepare the mushroom, I simply washed it thoroughly, shook out the extra water, sliced it into about five bite-size pieces, and sauteed it with some butter and herbs.  I let it cook for about 3 or 4 minutes on each side, uncovered.  It was a bit chewy, but very delicious.

I definitely see why they call it the Oyster Mushroom! :smile:

Oyster mushrooms are the shizzle.
I'm growing a batch of pearl oyster right now, in fact!
