More Oyster Mushrooms

While I was re-organizing my Flickr mushroom sets, we found that I had misidentified these photos. These are oyster mushrooms. We found these freeze dried on sugar maple trees in Barton, VT during sugaring time. In Japan these are called hira-take mushrooms. Since they are so well dried, we ground them up to put in casseroles, stews, sauces, and gravies. They look quite different than the fresh oyster mushrooms we have been collecting and eating.
