Specimen available

This was found growing on the well decomposing logs of Eastern Hemlock. The spore print is white. This is an edible species but has no taste unless you add garlic and soy sauce then it taste like garlic and soy sauce. I have attempted to pickle this. We will let you know how that turn’s out. Usually not found in abundance only a few on a log. This log was covered in them.
