Sulphur shelf, sometimes called chicken of the woods is delicious when 
fresh.  The outer inch or two is the best eating.  The closer you get to 
the core the stronger and more metalic the taste.  After freezing, the 
texture will be mushy, so a stew is the only thing you can do with it.  
If you find a fresh one next year, cut off the outside and saute it in 
butter.  Cover pan and cook until the juices run and begin to absorb.
