Actually, Polyporus squamosus *is* edible. It's listed in Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America by David Fischer and Alan Bessette as such, and they include recipes for it. The people I've talked to say it's a bit rubbery and not very good, but personal tastes are going to have the final say on whether you like them or not. You do have to get them while they're young - otherwise they become woodlike.

Happy mushrooming!

I'm not aware of any being specifically poisonous. Of course, most of them are like wood. I would call them inedible for the same reason I'd call an oak plank inedible. Not because they're toxic, just because you physically can't eat them - at least not without grinding it down into sawdust first (yum, yum!).

Quoting from Arora:

Saw into 2-inch cubes, then marinate in olive oil and dandelion wine for at least 48 hours (be sure to use LOTS of garlic!). Roast slowly on skewers over charcoal indefinitely (minimum time: 20 hours). Cool. Pound vigorously with a large lammet between two pieces of thick leather. Pulverise in a meat grinder and then force through a braced sieve (allow several hours for this step). Wrap the resulting mess in several thicknesses of cheesecloth and hang up somewhere high and out of the way (on a clothesline or TV antenna). Allow to dangle thus for at least one week. (Aging has a mellowing effect, so you may want to try one year.) Wring periodically, making sure to reserve the drippings for gravy or as a motor oil additive. To eat, boil for twenty-four hours, sqeeze thoroughly, garnish with gravel, and serve forth.


OK, now I'm all hungry... Time to get something to eat.

Happy mushrooming!

I do know that they are edible.
the web sites I looked at
said that they are not very
good to eat, like toxic said.
very cool looking though.
peace,
zero
