but, aside from growing from a pine species, the material was neither “delicate” nor especially “thin.” And I can note no difference between the flavor and aroma of this material from the oysters I’m accustomed to seeing in the swamps down here. However, these are uncharacteristically small and were growing from pine, so I could be wrong.
