The honey mushroom is here and its abundant. This wild edible is woodsy in the stalk but the cap is tasty, some say it is similar to the shitake and others just dont like it.
The honey mushroom is great cooked a while, like 15 minutes or so, and then pureed into a sauce or mixed in with mashed potatoes for an added flavor kick. As ususal I like to let them dry and then I crumble them into soups and omelettes. I still have some wine caps dried and in the freezer left over from spring and I also have some oyster mushrooms from New Mexico hanging around somewhere. I think its time for a wild mushroom melange of some sort. I always take the easy way and make lasagna lets see if I break out of my patterns.
