Notes: Found after a warm temps and rain recently.These were picked on the local river boardwalk just before our current weather system hit.(snow)They were frozen because it was 17 degrees.Had to cut them off the tree so some look a little rough.Camera was at home so this is the best I could do.

There were spores trapped between the layers of caps to start.And then once thawed they reacted as if they were still alive and fresh.These are the first I have collected in winter.So I really wasnt sure what to expect to tell you the truth.Really cool find though and it made my long cold winter much more fun.
You got spores after thawing? That would be cool to see. I thought they would still be edible. Morels didn’t fare so well the one time I tried it.
Considering you can freeze shrooms and they were almost perfect.You bet we did,down to the last one!! They were delicous and I wouldnt hesitate to do it again.But really these must have flushed during our warm spell and froze as it got cold again.
Did you try any of them? I’ve often wondered about the edibility of frozen oysters. They can persist for weeks frozen like that.
