it rained last night and i took a walk in the woods today. besides finding many unidentified mushies, i was very happy to find my first Maitake. What a beautiful and delicious mushy this is. I thought it might be unbrella polypore, but after checking it out, it appears to be MAitake. Im going to try drying some and the rest I'll saute. Also found was a large bunch of chicken of the woods. I left them there. I didnt know if they dry and store well for later culinary use, and there is no mention of them being medicinal.
The chicken of the woods are indeed medicinal according to eastern medicine. I beileve many immuno supporting elements. They dry alright but why not eat them today or tomorrow. It's fun to eat from the earth....ain't it.
Interesting that you say that. I dont doubt it, but its not listed in anything that ive seen including Aroras Medicinal mushies poster. Could you please tell where youve seen that its medicial? thanks.
chicken shrooms rule!
I really really want to get some plugs or something... but they are expensive
I found and ate some in alaska once
they were really good... ..when they are fresh they taste like dark meat and dry they taste like white meat
hehehehe... they kind of made my lips a little puffy and tingley..but other than that they were definately yummilicious
