This week’s Share is Lion’s Mane. This mushroom has spines that cascade down towards the ground. It is a beautiful white mushroom, but bruises brown very easily. It is still fine to eat if bruised; it is best chopped into 1/4 inch slices or torn into bite size pieces. It is being studied for its impact on nerves and their growth, potentially showing the capability to stimulate nerve growth.
Mushroom Share – 3 sessions of 6 weeks each starting on week 2, June 13 & 15. Cultivated mushrooms from Fungi Ally in Hadley, MA.
