Hoping for Oyster?
    #1655791 - 06/23/03 02:36 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I'm hoping these are oysters as there growing in my wood, so I'd
love to get a local clone to work on.
What are your thoughts? I have yet to work on
a spore print as I only just picked them.

Pleurotus ostreatus ? ^^

These Stink horns are just hatching ;-) also in my wood, strange how last year, before i found this place, i must have missed all these things.
:-)

Phallus impudicus^^ ?


The one already out is looking pretty horrid lol, but I'm hoping for some
better pictures of the others as they open.
I hear the eggs are edible but not the fruits, has anyone tryed these?
This man didnt rate them to highly :-)
Quote:

Edibility

Stinkhorns are too disgusting to eat, although none that I know of are poisonous. Nevertheless, people have tried eating the cooked eggs of some species after removing the slime layer. I reluctantly tried one bite of a cooked stinkhorn egg just once, so I could speak about the experience first-hand. I noticed very little flavor and a markedly unpleasant texture before I spit it out!





So dont really fancy the idear lol, but could be swayed by tails of good
meals had :-)

Growing on an old elm log (Ulmus alata) well rotted.
Smell, mushroomy/Damp.
Taste, mild mushroom flavour.
Gills, from stem to lip, branching near the lip.
Lip slightly upturned.
Skin, smooth glossy, brown to grey.

Growing in clumps of 12 or so at intervals along the log.

Mycelium white and mushroom smelling.

Cheers for the time, sorry i was light on detail :-)

P. ostreatus: "spores white, occasionally also grey-purple."

Well, thats good enougth for me :-)
i shall fry two with dinner tonight and let you know :-)
The clones are already showing a fuzzyness to there edges.
So im really looking forward to cultivating these.

Wifey is used to my strange hobbys lol.
I think shes happier with the active hunting than the edibles
as she doesnt even think Morchella taste good  :confused: :grin:
I think she thinks its a step up from dragging her around looking for orchids lol.

Still, i think she wishes i never found the shroomery :tongue:

Those are definitely Oyster Mushrooms.

And I think you got the stinkhorn ID right, too.

i must have missed all these things




As did we all. You have to learn to see.

Happy mushrooming!

They tasted pretty dam good  :eyemouth: i try to eat all
the first shrooms i pick or grow, just lightly fryed in olive oil,
so as not to miss the flavour, then later get more adventurouse :-)

They had a great texture, and fresh musky taste(slightly woody)

The clones are coming on well, so i hope to fruit some throught the winter :-) if not before.

The local deer also seem to like them lol, half were gone today, hope they enjoyed them as much as i did :-)

The last few stink horns to come up have been white tipped, the ones before gray tipped, and the ones before that black tipped?Is this common?


These oysters from a different tree(same wood) are lighter in colour
and have a lighter (whiter)  :print: spore print. But they taste just as good :-)
I've  cloned both sorts of oyster now.
