Orange peel fungus

Orange Peel Fungus Aleuria aurantia is a choice edible fungi with a fondness for following the edges of paths ad tracks especially where there are also decaying stumps and debris. Rotting bark chippings are a favourite. Fried in butter until it starts popping, it has a delicious deep smoky taste and a meaty texture. Only complaint is that it is difficult to find in any quantity!
