This is what the logs looked like when hubby and I brought them home today
I have them soaking in my well water tonight with a concrete block on top holding them under water, this will be for 24 hours so tomorrow night I can take it out of the water and start step two. My plans are to dehydrate the mushroom so they will last longer and also dehydrate the stems. The stems are to tough to eat so when they are dehydrated I plan on grinding them in my coffee grinder and storing the powder in a jar. This can then be added to soups, salads etc, anything that you want the mushroom flavor in. Also most important is the added benefit of the antioxidants and cholesterol lowering amino acid, the boost to the immune system etc. I will post more on this when they are ready to harvest it should be in a little over a week.
