chicken of the woods! (Laetiporus cincinnatus) my biggest mushroom find yet!
What kind of mushrooms are those?
Chicken of the woods (Laetiporus cincinnatus). Apparently they can sometimes taste like chicken. We’ll see!
Oh! Ha ha ha that’s an awesome name.
Btw- we were camping in Muskegon and I made sassafras tea… I need to figure out how to find more of@your root beer ingredients… it’s my summer goal.
Amazing! Did you like it? The other really good ingredient is wintergreen, which can be found in Michigan but I have only found it near Muskegon
Yeah it was great! I need to figure out how to find it in kalamazoo… I also really want to find spicebush and juniper but I’m not sure where to start that…
Juniper / eastern red cedar is really common in West Michigan! I bet there is some near you right now. Look for scraggly-looking pine-ish trees with a more army green color than regular pine trees. Also: really wild and gnarly trunks. Often found growing in windy open areas
