Oyster Mushrooms on the Menu

Both of the large horse chestnut Aesculus hippocastanum trees that fell in the January gale were host to some fabulous oyster mushrooms Pleurotus ostreatus. Fried in butter with an egg on the side. Mmm. One tree has not been cut up and gone forever, but one remains as a large stump on which I found these.

What do you think?
