   Okay, I went back yesterday and harvested the hen of the woods, confirmed that was what it was and cleaned it last night. Tonight I was looking for recipes to cook it and saw a suggestion about stir frying so I grabbed my wok, coated the bottom well with olive oil and finely diced a garlic clove then when it was hot I added a big double handful of the mushrooms and covered. Meanwhile I was boiling a box of tri-color pasta noodles. I drained the noodles when done and cooked most of the water out of the mushrooms, salted lightly, added black pepper and soy sauce then added the noodles and heated through. Pretty tasty IMHO. I'd rather have used egg noodles but we were out. Maybe for the next batch.

   I like cooking in a wok. I could easily see slicing a steak real thin and cooking it done then adding some more mushrooms and making a sauce with corn starch and water cooking done and serving over rice.

 Looks tasty! Yup that looks like a hen of the woods to me. Ive been keeping an eye out for them in my area, however no luck so far. The "chicken of the woods" or "sulfer shelf" is more orange in color (as in Banjo picker's pictures). They're pretty good eating also, they do have a texture almost like chicken and a fairly meaty flavor.

Happy Birthday.

   We had several good meals off the Hen of the Woods. Had the Pasta shown above, made steak and mushrooms and served it over rice, took the leftover and diced it up and made fried rice with that, added some to a frozen pizza and with the last made egg noodles and mushrooms. All but the pizza were wok meals. All were very good and I'll be very alert for any more I see.

I had to be patient ( 2 years !) before I had eaten my first wild mushroom. We took 2 days of formation with 2 different teams. But friends guiding us was the best learning. I dont eat very many different species ...may 4 or 5. But that gives me plenty. Last summer we harvested propably around 100 pounds mostly chanterelles and lobster mushroom. I stick only to the one I know very well.  Although I am still learnig a lot I dont take chances

For identification I use different sources and not only books. An excellent internet site that is very professionnal:    https://www.mycoquebec.org/bienvenue.php
A lot of pictures . Could be very technical for identification. Although the main page offer you the choice of language ( at the top of the front page ) , it is mainly in french; you could use Google translator or Reverso

I found a few mushrooms the other day at Safeway, but for that price I left them alone.
