    Found about 15 lbs of these on my logs at my parents house. I thought they should be my Trout strain but they could be my Bell strain from Virginia. Either way I don't have any that fruit this dark under normal conditions. The weather has been cold, wet, and cloudy all month. Glad they waited till I came home for Christmas. Gonna sauté and freeze tomorrow. image.jpg That's a full size dinner plate.

    Sorry to be so late to the party,.
    I found so many this winter I could not eat or give enough away. Folks got tired of them.
    I could eat them every day!

    Yes. It was a good winter for oysters. I hope you froze a good supply for the rest of the year. I love freezing in muffin tins and then just popping a frozen puck into sauce or soups.

    Really nice oyster you have there. I tried to clone the ones that popped on my pin oak this winter but no dice, i need to refine my technique for wilds i guess.
