Chicken of the Woods

Chicken of the woods (Laetiporus sulphureus) within reach! This particular one was a tad too dry to eat sadly, however it can still be powdered and added to a campfire to deter mosquitos. In its prime it’s an unusual mushroom in that it does have the taste and texture of chicken. It can be fried, baked, casseroled or served in a curry and dried and crumbled is great for kibbeh and falafel. Chicken of the woods mushroom
