    I need to try these Shaggy manes. I found a bunch last year but never picked them and just took pics. Looks delish.

    Jmay, the best way to taste test them is to slice them in half, lengthwise. Then sauté them on medium to medium low heat till all the liquid is dissolved, then add butter and sauté a little longer. Season with salt & pepper. 100_7323.JPG

    Unfortunately I found this spot too late. I did get enough hard buttons to make a nice dish though.

    I find them in the same areas . There's a church yard where I've found them for around 8 years so far. Some years there's more than other years. Guess it depends on the rain that season.

    Out here in CA. they fruit in the same spots every season as long as someone doesn't tear up the area they are growing in. By the way, I slice my Shaggy Manes length wise, dip them in egg that I previously whipped up (with a splash of milk) then cover them in Progresso Italian bread crumbs and fry them in 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil. It's to die for!! Give it a try; you won't be sorry! (and you'll be hooked!).
