Observation 200584: Auricularia americana Parmasto & I. Parmasto ex Audet, Boulet & Sirard
When: 2015-03-14
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Abundant flushes, fruiting on well rotted and waterlogged pieces of conifer wood(Pacific silver fir).
Along the creekside snowmelt melt predominantly.

Temp: mid 50’s. Overnight freeze.

Elevation: 3100.

Everyone sampled from these and decided they’re better dried and thin sliced in “hot n sour” soup than raw. I did like the snappy, crisp, jelly texture tho.

Could be good and crispy in a summer salad perhaps?

We’ll have to experiment further-
