While collecting tissue samples of Castanea dentata (American Chestnut) at the
Harvard Forest in Petersham, MA, I found a single B. edulis in perfect
condition (this means it was only slightly nibbled on and no maggots).  I
pealed the stem and saute'd slices in a little butter, garlic, and chive,
mmmmmgood.   For those of you in Western MA, it was near trail marker 11 of the
black gum trail....good luck.
