Observation 123125: Sarcomyxa serotina (Pers.) P. Karst.

When: 2013-01-18

Collection location: Yost Park, Edmonds, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mark Lee (EdibleGuy)

No specimen available

Notes:
Growing on hardwood log. Tree blown at least a year ago. I don’t know the tree, but I think it is native to the area and the bark is blistered like a cherry.

I find these late fall oyster mushrooms to be tasty. I boil them 10 minutes then saute them in olive oil.

I seen them growing is what I mean. I can see why the call em oyster mushrooms. The texture is like an oyster. I only ate a few. I read that some people have bad allergic reactions to them. But man what a great taste.

I’m new to hunting. However I’ll bet a month wages that it was an alder log. I saw other hardwood today. Cherry,maple, and alder. Alder is all I found them on.
