Pretty. Worm free? For dinner?

They do tend to suffer from worms, but I found enogh that were worm free. Also found some huge examples on an old ash tree that were well past it. This is a mushroom that I'm beginning to like the more I eat. However, they can be tough even when young/small.

Long, slow cooking, with meat, in a stew. Then the flavour is superb, and the texture pleaseng.

Cab, that sounds like it would work and something I should have thought of. Next time I find a nice dryads saddle I'll give it a go.

I pick the really big ones too. They are too tough to eat as is, but I dry them in the dehydrator then grind them into a fine powder in a spice mill. I use it as a sort of seasoning powder and it's fab.

We are talking about the same mushroom are we?
The big ones are normally almost as soft as the trees they grow on...
Or am I thinking of something similar?
