Through the woods I went this week, hunting for Lion's Mane. It's a delicious edible mushroom that looks like something from Dr. Seuss' imagination.
Please please do not eat mushrooms that you find in the woods (or in your yard) until you have been trained to ID them (googling does not count). Many edible mushrooms have poisonus look-alikes and it's just not worth the risk. A good way to learn more would be participate in the walks your local mycological society hosts.
When we lived in Brooklyn, we were spoiled by an amazing mushroom stand at our green market and had enjoyed Lion's Mane frequently. It does not have a poisonous look-alike and having handled this mushroom many times I felt confident in my ID and decision to eat it.
Do as I say, not as I do.
Sauteed with rosemary, thyme, and sea salt.
