Yep, that it is. I've heard that they're better to eat before the gills become dark.

That's right!

"They're one of my favorites, but not everybody likes them (true of anything you eat). They have a distinctive but not overpoweringly strong flavor.

I like to chop 'em up, fry 'em in butter, and mix 'em in with scrambled eggs.

I have also heard that they make a really good cream of mushroom soup, but I haven't tried them that way yet.

Try doing a google search on "coprinus comatus" or "shaggy mane" and "recipe". There are tons of good recipes out there.

Make sure you get them cooked before the gills start to change color. Once they're no longer white the mushrooms seem to develop a nasty, sort of metallic taste (my opinion). Some people seem to have no problem with trimming off the parts that have changed, but try 'em and see.

Cooking them stops the deliquescence (the process of turning into inklike goo). Incidentally, even freezing them solid won't stop it - they'll still turn to goo in your freezer. After you've cooked them they can be frozen, which is the way I prepare them so they can be stored for future use."

:P Hope you don't mind TM :laugh:

Yes, those are Coprinus comatus. They are a bit too old to eat, but nice specimens. Your photos are excellent - they show the gills turning pinkish before they turn black (look at the edge of the colored area in the third photo).

Happy mushrooming!
