What about the Pheasant Back Mushroom? I was reading a book about edible mushrooms and this came up as a mushroom Morel hunters often just pass right by. I swear i've seen it before, but maybe im mistaken. The book i'm reading has to do with "Illinois and surrounding states" so maybe my memory is wrong. But is it out there commonly and secondly, is it good?
Pheasant Backs are really tasty if you find them fresh and I believe they will last pretty long on the tree. If your close to home pick one, cut into fry like sticks and fry up. Then you can go back for more. I haven't had much luck freezing them...someone else may have a suggestion on that.
