I just got in from WI and picked up some excentric berries (elderberries, bilberries, golden/orange and red raspberries, butternuts....) the raspberries were made into jam yesterday but the elderberries and bilberries are kind of musky....what have you made with them? Also bought a PRIME 8# hen of the woods (maitake) from the smoked trout vender (yes yes yes!!!!!) sauteed the majority of it and froze it the rest was dried....the whole thing was tender and edible....not many creepy crawlies living in it dispite the size. Any good hen recipes? I've got a mind to powder some of the dried stem and use it in sauces or to coat fish/chicken. Parsnips are abundant, I may make parsnip soup and add bits of maitake at the end. The bilberries really stumped me.
