Hobbler, Tran is probably right. Edible but not choice. I would like to try one just to see how it taste though.
Now on the other hand, if you find some Maitake mushrooms this fall, that's a whole other story. Maitake (Hen of the Woods) are one of my top 5 favorites. Great mild flavor, and they hold up well when sauteed or in a sauce or any recipe for that matter. They keep well to in the fridge for a couple of week or more. Most of the time you will find more than you can eat so I freeze mine. I rinse them off and chop them up to about the size of a sliced button mushroom and then freeze them.
Yes YES YES!!! EAT THEM NOW. LOL Congrats they are great. Classic Black Trumpet habitat in your pic. Find the moss and you have a chance for Black Trumpets. They grow elsewhere but love the moss.
Yesterday morning, I chopped some black trumpets up with some Chanterelle mushrooms and onion and put them in an omelet with bacon and cheese, it was fantastic.
Shroomdawg and I went a couple weeks ago and found them. They keep well in the fridge in a plastic grocery bag with the top left open for air to circulate. Don't wash them. Just pick em and put em in the fridge. I rotate or stir them in the bag now and then so the ones on the bottom do not get wet and rot. If they dry out a bit in the fridge it will not hurt anything.
Hobbler trumpets are my #1 mushroom to eat!!!! Great find. I pick them by the bag fulls, Dehydrate them and crush them down to powder(Store in GLASS mason jars) they will keep for many years. IMOA this mushroom is the best earthy taste of them all (Called Poor Man's truffle). I've been hitting them hard local for the last two weeks, when they are up I don't stop picking until they are done. I pick them some years until Sept. There is two different strains of trumpets two different color spore prints(I think pink and white). The weather local has been spot on for trumpet and chant growth Congrats and enjoy!
