They become bland tasting rubber .But i like to collect them in the spring right before Morel season when they are first starting out. Much better then. More tender but still the taste is somewhat mild. but at least It don’t chew back at that stage. If you stew them slowly works best I have found.
Interestingly, this was one of the first species I tried when I started hunting mushrooms about ten years. The field guide said they were edible, so I broke off a few large lobes, took them home and fried them in butter. They were way too tough to chew, and the flavor was like watermelon rind. I hear the buttons are good, but I have not tried them.
Do you eat these?
