A large and lovely mushroom which grows in clusters at the base of Ponderosa and a few other types of Pine. It develops a feathery pattern on the cap, which may turn orangish as it dries, and it may bruise ochre or even orange in color as it ages. The gills are white, but also darken to ochre or orange with age. Spores are white.
Giant Sawgill is a good edible, and can be neuroregenerative - this means that it can really help with conditions such as MS, and with spinal or brain injuries, but it also means it should NOT be used continuously, and should probably be avoided by people with neural tumors.
Eating it is sort of like eating very slippery Calamari - the texture is firm and somewhat rubbery. The flavor is mild - so mild that it tends to absorb the flavor of whatever it is cooked with, though it does have a slightly sweet flavor that comes through. It is a large and meaty mushroom.
Giant Sawgill is well named, it can be 12" across when fully unfurled. We have only ever found them with partially open caps, and those were 6-7" across. The cap is thick, and the stems are broad, so you get a lot of food from a single mushroom.
Giant Sawgill freezes better than it dries, though you can use either one for preserving as food. To preserve for medicinal uses, freezing is preferable.
We sell Giant Sawgill spawn in our Mushroom Store, we do NOT carry this as a medicinal or food item.
