Looks like oyster mushrooms. Do they smell like black licorice? I have had good luck dehydrating them and also blanching for three minutes in hot water then pat dry and vacuum bag freeze.

What kind of tree is that? They usually grow on poplar trees. Looks like oysters but I always encourage people to do their own research. Slice them 1/8" thick and dehydrate to preserve or fry them in butter.

Yes they are oysters 100%. I'd eat those any day. I have many times. They look to be perfect and fresh.

They grow on Elm, Willow, Box Elder, and several others around here. Willow is most common for those white ones in my area.

I dehydrate them but the young fresh ones are the best the older ones are kinda tough. I like to Sautee in butter when fresh.

X2 A little garlic salt and butter in a cast iron pan on the grill next to a couple nice ribeyes and you got yourself the best meal you can get without a lobster on the side. laugh

They are growing on a dead maple tree. I do not smell licorice. The smell almost reminds me of sea food.

Just rinse them good and put them in a plastic bag in the fridge. Eat them tomorrow, they'll be great. I have never smelled or heard of a licorice smell to oyster mushrooms.

If the ridges under the hood run down the stem, it's an oyster. Those look great, slice them in strips and bread them and fry them in butter.

There are a few different varieties of them, the ones in Maine may very well smell that way. I have just never heard of it.
