I found some Daedalea quercina aka maze gilled polypore.
They have a really cool deep maze pattern that resemble gills underneath but they are actually a polypore.
These are partial to growing on dead oak trees.
Here is what they look like from the top.
I also found a pretty clean artist conk.
The only blemish is a dot where this grew around a branch. I will try and use this one for a wood burning art project.
Perhaps I can turn the blemish into a fish eye?
Or maybe an eagle eye? Who knows we'll see what it turns into.
I found some black knot fungi aka Dibotryon morbosum. This is considered a blight for trees as it kills the branches it infects.
Last up is a new drink I found at the store that combines reishi, chaga and turkeytail along with some kombucha cider. It tastes great, I may try and make my own at home.
I just need to find more reishi.
Then combine it with some chaga.
And of course the turkey tail is abundant around here, no problem finding this. I would basically stew these three mushrooms together with some black tea for a couple days then use that tea with a kombucha mother to ferment it into kombucha. This should be really healthy full of vitamin d and other properties that kill cancer and reduce blood pressure.
Of course its much easier to buy it from the store but if I make it at home I can craft a new flavor, maybe mix it with pineapple juice instead of apple cider.
Happy #fungifriday :-)
