Black-Staining Polypore Recipes??

Recommended Posts

I found a Meripilus giganteus yesterday (see photo) but have never eaten one. If anyone has a good recipe please advise. I'm told they can be rather stringy but this one looks young and is [hopefully] relatively tender.

I have eaten them when young and they are good. I deep fried them in drakes batter mix after cutting it into roughly 1 inch squares. To check them to see if they are tender enough to use i cut them with a plasic butter knife, if it doesnt cut it easily then its to old.

Mushroom dinner last night. As recommended, we batter-dipped and fried some of the Meripilus along with a Laetiporus that I collected on the same foray. As expected, several pieces were a little chewy...but the flavor was good. I would definitely eat it again.
