This bad boy was growing on the Mulberry stump in the backyard. If there's an oyster mushroom in the backyard then there are oyster mushrooms growing in the forest. We suited up the dog, hopped in the truck, took a hike (literally), and found two more pounds of mushrooms. And I found a lot of mosquitoes, sadly.
Oyster mushrooms are an underrated delicacy and we ate them three different ways.
1. Floured, dipped in eggs, rolled in Ritz cracker crumbles, and then deep fried. Oh god, salivating over here.
2. Simply cooked in butter. You could really taste the mushroom. So fresh.
3. Lightly sauteed and then decorated with lemon, cocktail sauce, and horseradish.
