Too bad you focus so much on the "ick factor". Lotsa folks are eating more/different mushrooms these days. A friend of mine says huitlacoche is like portabello mushroom flavor with a little "corn kernel skin texture". Too bad the students haven't figured out a way to make lemonade; hopefully this will change. Maybe a "community huitlacoche harvest"! ;-)  
For me eating bugs remains the "higher hurdle".  
I wonder about huitlacoche as feed... the folks at the poultry service are growing fly larvae...  
Thanks for the interesting article.

One of my favorite fungi to eat. I get excited when I find it. Another thing that is very tasty but not pleasing to look at are the grubs in nuts and acorns. I fry them in butter, they taste like a cross between popcorn and bacon.
