It seems to absorb the flavors of anything you cook it with. Want lobster? Add a little lobster broth. Chicken? Add some thing chicken to the mixture. Pork. Beef. Crab. Scallops. Clams. Whatever turns you on, this fungus becomes an instant extender.
me and my neighbor cooked it up.
this was the second time i’ve had Hericium.
my neighbor compared the chunkier pieces to bay scallops and the more fragile pieces to crab meat.
Makes you wonder why it wasn’t named something like “Frozen Waterfall Mushroom” or some such thing, doesn’t it?
I can’t speak to cognitive functions. But about 1989, I started having symptoms of multiple sclerosis. It got bad enough I worried about falling in the middle of a cross-walk, and not being able to crawl to the other side. My leg would go completely numb in the middle of a step.
Within a week of having my first taste of Hericium erinaceus in a pork-fried rice dish, I had no more symptoms.
Hericium erinaceus is strongly suspected of being immuno-activating.
There’s an article in the current Mycophile about an experiment which sought to explore the value of this mushroom to cognitive functions.
Nice find. Was it growing on Oak or some other hardwood? Enjoy it; they are good eating
