  6. I decided to cut up a few onions to carmelize.

    Then sautéed my oysters in garlic butter. [​IMG]
    Added the carmelized onions back.

    Then some sweet Italian sausage left over from homemade pizza last night.

    Then when it looked about right I put most in a container for later and left a bit in the skillet.

    Then added some fresh country eggs. Was gonna do 4 then went 6.

    The dish looks delicious as you have prepared it.

    I sort of like the pure mushroom taste for Oysters. I have picked several pounds in last few days . I cut them up win 2 inch squares and just go black iron, butter, salt and pepper and thats it . I think the delicate flavor of these mushrooms get sort of lost in a combo dish, but thats just me. I cant cook them fast enough of anybody is standing around the skillet with a fork in their hand. If you find some of the small ones that are really fresh and moist when picked you will have one of the best eats in the mushroom world IMO.

    In the last few weeks I have found some beautiful Lions Beard, Hen of the Woods, and now Oysters. Im really not out there looking a lot for them, but once you have found some its amazing how many you see just along roads and so forth. I have seen some nice fresh puff balls out in the cow pastures too but didn't feel like climbing somebody's fences to get them:)

    Twenty feet up a dead tree and a ladder? Id be plenty careful about that approach. Course I'm sure you know whats safe and wants not but 20 feet is way up there.

    All the oysters I have found this year have been on standing 10-14 inch dead poplars. No any on a ground log. Sort of strange to me why there are 10 inch dead poplars around in the first place.

    What do you do with them! Put in tupper ware bowl and place in small cooler. And mail to me. I will promptly send cooler and Tupperware back for your future “What do I do with these now” problems.

    Good point. Im getting desperate cause im not finding them on the ground lol. Also thanks for the warning. I climbed about 10 ft with a ladder and used a long stick with a Y on it to pluck the right off. Worked out well and i probably would have scurried all the way up to get them had you not mentioned it. Lol The tree seemed stout but you really cant ever trust a dead tree.
