Chicken of the Woods
The Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus var.) is without a doubt; my favorite edible mushroom. It is a shelf mushroom, which grows on decaying wood.
The color really stands out, especially on a rainy day. I saw these on a stump yesterday; from about a hundred yards away.
I was only fortunate enough to find one clump last year and wasn't able to enjoy the delectable flavor. I had the Hog Flu and couldn't taste anything.
These, which I found yesterday are just about enough to make you want some more.
