Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Did you prod it?
We sliced it up and brought it home! A bit yucky, but we are going to try and eat it. Any recommendations?
Not tried eating this species, never thought it particularly appealing.
Did have a 'local wild mushroom' dish at a pub recently and the wild mushrooms were Auricularia auricula-judae which seemed a bit poor as I was expecting Boletus edulis. However the sauce helped them to taste reasonable anyway and I had not eaten this species before (other than tasting little bits raw off branches). After hearing that a few fresh B.edulis had cost the chief on the food program £50 this morning perhaps just as well they were not used in the pub meal.
Wow. £50 really?! We are picking basket fulls at the moment. More than we know what to do with. We had a mound of them on toast for breakfast this morning, Delicious.
in your favourite / healthiest oil or fat, would be my recommendation for beefsteak fungus. Tastes rather cheesy in my experience.
Thanks. we will give that a try.
