When I first started hunting mushrooms I ate these a few times. In my experience, they are good as long as the flesh is soft and juicy. Once they dry out a bit it is nearly impossible to rehydrate them while cooking.
The mushrooms in this observation are very strange. It is the only time I have seen Laetiporus with such a distinctive frilly margin. It reminds me of a chicken’s comb!
Pretty good eating. Here in the PNW unless this is found on older Red alder or Black cottonwood, the same material is Laetiporus coniferoides, also quite edible, often fruiting on Western hemlock, Noble fir, Sitka spruce or very-old-growth Douglas fir.
