    Hen of the Woods (Maitake) Charcoal Grilled

    Start with this, Ha!

    I painted the fronds with virgin Olive Oil

    To control the heat, I placed them around the edge of the grill.

    With several sauces it was an enjoyable accompaniment to the dinner.

    Barbequed Hen of the Woods

    This occasion, I painted the Maitake fronds with Barbeque Sauce.

    I used a perforated grill pan that fits on the small grill I use and keeps the smaller pieces from falling through.

    It fits well enough that the lid can go down, allowing a good smoke to develop, too.

    Crispy on the edges, delicious, here with a grilled fish and braised greens.

    Hen/Maitake Sweet Potato Hash

    I don't remember where I was inspired to do this -- but I loved the result.

    Basic ingredients: Onion, Garlic, Sweet Potato and Hen of the Woods, on the cutting board, below.

    The idea is to dice up things into similar size pieces so they saute into a Hash.

    Well, for me, Hash is more of a breakfast item, but I've had it at restaurants for dinner.

    With fried eggs, toast & jam,. a very satisfying breakfast.

    Maitake & Beech Mushroom Puff Pastry
    These Maitake and Beech Mushrooms did not come from the woods but cultivated and from an Asian Grocery -- same as you'd get in the woods, and superb quality.

    I sauteed the chopped mushrooms with garlic, onions, white wine and cream, salt, pepper & thyme, let it cool down and thicken and put into a puff pastry and baked it.

    These are very satisfying, to me.
