Noah they are still going strong. We finally got our annual 60+ pints canned and cleaned 4 big ones yesterday to coat fry and freeze. Last year doing 60 pints canned we had enough for the whole year. When we picked yesterday we noticed alot more still out there they are slowing down in growth, but the cold and rain has kept them going longer this year.
Last night we cleaned and then egg wash then a flour mixture, added ground up rice crispies and ground saltines crackers. Fry them up til golden brown and put in the freezer to harden them up. then into vacum bags a meal to a bag. When mother nature supplies them like she did this year we took advantage of it.

I have no clue what it even is?
If it isn't a morel...I don't touch em, I'm assuming these are some kind of mushroom?

Yep. Mike there a mushroom. Sheephead, rams head, chicken of the woods. All the same family. Find them around oaks this time of year usually at the base of the trunk. Google them. Not only are they very tasty but loaded with vitamins and minerals all good for you. They will get pretty big, but usually they are the size of a mushball to a basket ball. Clean all the dirt away do either a salt brine soak or a quick boil and then cold water bath. Fry them up plain with butter or coat them in your favorite coating mix and cook them up. There just as good as the spring morals, and alot meatier.

Sheep head to me are the best. It was an odd year here for them, I go by the weather, when you here warnings of first frost is when they should be there for sure. Its been drier here by me in Jasper county but theres plenty now. I got a few more to grab today. I soak over night or so in a a 6 gal bucket of water with a little salt to help get the bugs and the dirt out. I cut the thicker
stalks off and wash in the sink in cold water and pretty much just pull them apart. They freeze great, I leave them wet when freezing.
I love them sauteed in butter in a frying pan on the stove.
Yes the dying roots of the big old OAKS is whats written so any big old oak is where to look.
I have a few more to harvest this morning.

I found these around an old stump I have been burning for a few years on the property for the first time.
I give away alot of them.

I had some with eggs for breakfast this morning. Picked and cleaned in late October then just refrigerated in a fridge set just above the freezing mark (the garage beer-cooler). Still good.

I helped a friend extract a deer that ran off into the woods after he shot it. The deer fell dead by a big oak with three nice "hens" on it. Another one to put on the map.

They grow on the same tree each year.

Better than morels in my book.

Wallin: stop burning that stump!
