Also are these Auricularia auricula: The Jelly Ear  or Wood Ear Mushrooms (Auricularia Polytricha), also known as Tree Ear

Auricularia auricula-judae (syn. Auricularia auricula, Hirneola auricula-judae) is commonly known as Judas's ear fungus or Jew's Ear, the name from which it derives the "judae" in its scientific name, or as the jelly ear fungus. This jelly fungus is conspicuously ear shaped, ranging from purple to dark brown or black in color with a rubbery texture, and most often found on dead elder trees but also on elms. It was said that Judas hanged himself on an elder tree, which is the origin of the name. [2]

And on a dead cut off leveled stump

I've seen these before but not since I was a youngster, I didn't realize they were edible.

If you ever had Hot and Sour Soup you might have had the ear mushroom, both JEW ear and wood ear are used in asian foods and are sold in asian markets apparently...

I cant wait to try them :laugh:

I dry the ones i find or use them fresh, cut them up into sum water and boil for 2-3 hours. I read a thing about those judas ears(another name for them)that they can cause allergic reactions in sum people so be careful, im sure youll be alright.

They taste really bitter fresh do you just drink it straight up or do you mix it with tea also?

I was reading the wikipedia page on them and i was wondering if even half of the page is true... how can one mushroom help so many things :O
