Chicken of the Woods

Thanks I suppose to the wet end of summer/early fall, we’ve been enjoying lots of great wild mushrooms (along with the shiitakes we grow).  In addition to plenty of wonderfully delicious chanterelles, this two pound beauty is the second chicken-of-the-woods we’ve found this year.

Best of all, we didn’t have to forage for hours in the deep woods.  These awesome gifts of nature were all near our house, easy to find and easy to harvest.

Years ago we were on a tour of the wetlands around Apalachicola, Florida and the tour guide kept pointing out all the great food growing or living in the wild there.  At one point he said with a chuckle, “If you go hungry in Apalachicola it’s your own fault.”

I reckon that’s true on White Flint Farm as well.
