An all year round mushroom, Jelly (or Jew’s) Ear…

Jelly or Jew's Ear (Auricularia auricula-judae)There’s not an awful lot happening in the world of funghi at this time of year but we spotted these Jelly Ears out walking yesterday. We’ve not eaten them ourselves but for a tasty soup recipe and lots of background info on the history of the name and the medicinal value of this mushroom have a look at Nick Weston’s Hunter:Gather:Cook blog from 24/1/2011.
