    My brother gave me some bears head tooth he found. I fried some in ramp butter and scrambled some eggs in with it this morning it is absolutely delicious! Any ideas for ways to make the rest of it would be appreciated. 20190822_061220.jpg

    Screen Shot 2019-08-22 at 9.23.19 AM.png Making Crab Cakes with them is quit common. I made mine with Hericium americanum. Soup is another great one, the flavor really adds to it. I also throw in a few other wild mushrooms. On another note, use Louisiana Seafood Boil. It's much better than the others! SAM_0388.JPG IMGP0998.JPG

    Sparassis crispa or S. spathulata ( Cauliflower fungus ) makes for some great Beef Stroganoff.

    Looks good
    That one is on my bucket list along with Gomphus clavatus/pig ears. I have a feeling they are not easy to find in n.e mi.

    Jmay, I find Gomphus around the edge of swamps. Personally I don't care for them cause they are really bland. However, I imagine with the right recipe they may be good. They are definitely meaty. Also, I only know of one area to find Sparassis, and that's in White Pines.
