Oysters







Found what I believe are oysters. Not 100% but pretty dam sure. But if they are would you eat them being that they are that close to the road? All my books say don't eat any that grow by roads.

Re: Oysters

Re: Oysters

Huh. Yeah that's what I decided they were. Didn't eat them though. Just drove past that tree the other day. They're still there.

Re: Oysters

Yup the only reason I didn't try them was because they are right next to a main road.

Re: Oysters

I see alot of them in my neck of woods.

Still wary - not confident enough in my mushroom ID skills.

Re: Oysters

I generally saute them in butter. cut the stems off and where they attach to the shroom. this part is usually a little chewy. you can add these parts to stews and soups for flavoring.
