Several sites have recipes and information. I’m fairly sure you can still prepare this, as long as it isn’t moldy or black all the way through. I used the entire mushroom no matter how much is lacquered.

I make a pretty weak tea and drink it a few times a week, not bad!

It is G. oregonense

There are special ways to prepare this fungus. It is a recipe passed down.

I thought they were made into tea and consumed like Ganoderma lucidum?. Am I wrong?.

The underside is no longer white and looks varnished like on the top. Does that mean this is no good for consumption?
