CHICKEN OF THE WOODS 🐥

🌿 Chicken of the woods

🌿Scientific name: Laetiporus sulpnureus

🌿Also known as: sulphur polypore

🌿Found: May-September 🌱☀️

Found growing in large tiers on tree trunks and stumps, this fairly common edible mushroom.

🌿Mushroomy flavour- said to taste like chicken to some people. It has the same texture as chicken and is good in stews as a veggie ‘meat’ substitute.

*first time test*

Some people may have an allergic reaction to this mushroom, so it is advisable to try a very small amount when eating for the first time. Wait 24hrs to monitor for any reaction.

🌿POSSIBLE CONFUSION : When young it could be confused with dryads saddle or blackening polypore, however both are edible!

🌿 For a little more information about these lovely mushrooms, head over to our Wild Food UK YouTube channel where Marlow talks a little more in depth about them.
