These are Dryad’s Saddle also known as Pheasant’s back mushroom and Polyporus squamosus. It is a edible shelf mushroom found in the Spring. It is best sliced thin and cooked slow with non other than bacon fat or duck fat. A great friend brought them over for me before we went Morel hunting!

I just waded through the bramble this morning under the aged apple trees and found these beauties! I love Morels!! Stay tuned for some Morel dishes…

A spring dish of ricotta agnolotti filled with house made ricotta and pea purée, served with sautéed morels, peas and a broth made from ramp tops and the whey reserved from making the ricotta…from The Pines in Brooklyn. OMG, I need to eat this!!

Clouds above Salt Acres. Such a crisp New England day, senses spinning with rhythmic wind.
