Chicken of the woods?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm new to the site and request some ID help. I have always hunted Morels but i just found this guy yesterday and am 90% sure it is chicken of the woods. The underside is white and smooth. no gills.  Anyone agree with me? I'm looking forward to trying it. 

 

Thanks,

Drew

After a lot of research thats the same conclusion I came to. Laetiporus Cincinnatus. It tastes great. I really have never had anything like it. I will always keep an eye out for these from now on.

Laetiporus Sulphureus is realy common around here also. Taste the same and can be found in large numbers sometimes.

 Maybe the bright yellow tubes just makes them seem to taste better. 🤔

Very common mushroom that is quite distinctive and tastes great if you get them young enough.
