Chicken Of The Woods

Someone just knocked on my door to ask if they could have the chicken of the woods growing in my yard.

Take it, you hillbilly!

by Anonymousreply 5507/31/2020

If they misidentify it, and drop dead, could you be liable, OP?

Are you kidding ? I cover nyc for it! Yum faggot! And it’s in your back yard

by Anonymousreply 207/28/2020

It’s a little early for that variety OP they usually appear in the fall

R3 It was growing in the yard. Are you calling me a liar?

Chicken of the woods are sought after.

WTF is Chicken of the Woods? Where do you live that you have hillbillies perusing your landscaping?

by Anonymousreply 607/28/2020

R6 i wonder if there’s a machine or device to look it up?

I had two false chicken of the woods in my yard this month, surely yours is legit OP.

They grow on dead or dying tree trunks. I'm not brave enough to eat wild fungi. Death by the poisonous species is very painful.

That's odd; I've only ever heard it called Hen of the Woods, but it sounds like everyone knows it by the other name. Where are you all from? I'm upper Midwest.

Another musical by Stephen Sondbürggenhøven, one of St. Olaf's most popular composers of musical theatre. He was the one who adapted [italic]Hey, That's My Tractor[/italic] into [italic]Hey Hey, That's My Tractor![/italic] And they said it couldn't be done!

Does that make chickens the mushrooms of the barnyard?

In high school a teacher brought in fried puff ball, I had never even heard of puff ball, but it was one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. To me the way he fixed it, it tasted like a really good cut of beef.

Geesh R17, it is really scary the way your mind works.

Depending on what species of this mushroom you have growing OP, you could soon have problems with that tree. I have a large wood full of oaks and have enjoyed this mushrooms many times. The trees that have them for a few years are inevitably blown over in the next big hurricane that comes through because they have been weakened by rot in the roots.

R18 Geesh? Are you a judy blume book?

On our property "chicken of the woods" means "the one trying to get away."

I have tried black truffles in Paris with a white wine risotto and, of course, foie gras. The mushrooms taste like a tender filet mignon with a mildly smokey and meaty flavor. Exquisite.

My roommate and I would take low cost local airlines and spend one night in a suite at a luxury hotel which had separate beds (she's a woman) and then the rest of the time at a simpler hotel and prefer to sample the best foods the city had to offer.

Is Chicken of the Woods the new Beyond Meat?

Thanks, R25. I thought R24's response what pretty good

by Anonymousreply 3407/28/2020

Actually, Chicken of the Woods and Hen of the Woods are two different kinds of fungus, R10.

Hen of the Woods is Grifola frondosa, while Chicken of the Woods is Laetiporus sulphureus.

Do vegans eat chicken of the woods or other fungi?

by Anonymousreply 3607/28/2020

Eww wtf is that?

by Anonymousreply 3707/28/2020

I’m really wondering who walks the streets checking out the fungi growing on their neighbors property.

by Anonymousreply 3807/28/2020

Plenty of people forage wild mushrooms in states where they're common. It might be for eating, but a lot of the time it's pretty profitable. Chicken of the Woods goes for $20/lb. easily, according to Google. I had a distant cousin in my family in Wisconsin who made hundreds of dollars a week gathering morels when there were in season.

Sounds like the title of a Justin Timberlake album. The sequel to Man of the Woods!

It's true. I just referenced family in Wisconsin who foraged for mushrooms to supplement income, but now I live in Portland, and everyone I know here who forages is a food blogger or works in a restaurant.

I forage for fun here, r42. Fall mushroom hunting is the best. Last year was a banner year due to all the rain in September.

I forage for cock in the woods.

by Anonymousreply 4407/29/2020

But why were they named chicken of the woods?

by Anonymousreply 4507/29/2020

Mushroom tastes like meat, with similar texture.

by Anonymousreply 4607/29/2020

Someone made me morels once. They were tasty but I have the feeling sofa stuffing would be tasty if you sautéed it in enough butter and garlic.

by Anonymousreply 4707/29/2020

More like chicken of the hobos.

by Anonymousreply 4807/29/2020

Yeah r48 maybe leave the mushrooms for the needy?

Mmmm,...Chicken of the Woods - those woods wouldn't happen to be West Hollywoods, would they?

Asking for a friend...

by Anonymousreply 5007/30/2020

Ah, I bet my competition for foraging in PDX are happy I am stuck with my partner's family in Eastern Oregon! I bet this spring was excellent.

My consolation out here are huckleberries and morels. Just have to be careful of hillbillies with guns.

by Anonymousreply 5107/30/2020

r51, I don't think it was a great morel season here based on what I saw online. I was down in Palm Springs unit June 1st though. When will you return?

by Anonymousreply 5207/30/2020

I'd be afraid to eat it.
