Weird and strange mushrooms
Coral mushrooms – weird and sometimes tasty
This article originally posted to mybackyard.ca – northern gardening, foraging, wild edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms and some recipes.
A summer and fall of hunting and identifying wild plants and mushrooms here in Northwest Ontario has lead me to many realizations, the least of which is that there are alot of strange things out there growing in our forests – and those are just the mushrooms.
Some of the strangest mushrooms out there belong to the same group – the coral mushrooms. And just like the name suggests they kinda look like undersea corals in general. Except they are mushrooms, they grow in NW Ontario and some of them are even edible.
These little Flat Topped Corals were also very yummy sauteed. Kinda look like little clubs or trumpets.
