Chicken of the Woods 2009 October 001
I was biking home through Wilder, Vermont, yesterday when I noticed this bright yellow-orange mushroom out of the corner of my eye. I thought "that might be a chicken of the woods." It's growing out of a living oak tree, which apparently is less common (usually they grow from dead wood, stumps and logs), but also lucky (one source warns not to eat these if they are growing from conifers or if you can't be certain of the type of wood). I knocked on the door of the house whose yard this was in, but no answer. I did break off a small piece to bring home for identification. Turns out that proves what an amateur I am -- this is one of the "foolproof four" edible mushrooms that is easiest to identify in North America, the Laetiporus sulphureus or chicken of the woods (aka sulphur mushroom). Once I'd confirmed it through online guides, I cooked up my sample (boiled for a couple minutes then sauteed in olive oil; added a dash of salt when done) and I'll be darned, it really did taste just like chicken!

I had to stop and go back for this shot, which i like despite its lack of a central focus. I also expect an ewok on a speeder to come flying through. how long do you suppose it will be until there is an online asian cooking guide called eWok.com?
