taken from the First-Nature website......
Field guides that cover edibility as a topic generally state that Helvella crispa is 'edible but of poor quality'; however, it is well documented that White Saddles can cause stomach upsets unless very thoroughly cooked, at which point they tend to lack both texture and taste.
There is also concern that Helvella fungi may contain carcinogens. What's the point of taking risks for such a dubious gain?
