Yellow Brain Fungus, Golden Jelly Fungus or Witch's Butter (Tremela mesenterica)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tremella mesenterica (common names include yellow brain fungus, golden jelly fungus and Witch's butter) is a jelly fungus that is commonly found on rotting wood, especially gorse, as a parasite of crust fungi of the genus Peniophora. It is not considered edible, though it can be cooked in soups, or used as a substitute for Jelly Ear fungus.

Its close relative, snow fungus, T. fuciformis, is commonly used in Chinese cuisine, and witch's butter is also used as a tough substitute for snow fungus.

Hoi Erik,

Wat kan schimmel mooi zijn hè. Heel mooi vastgelegd, de schimmel springt er echt uit.

Groetjes Nico

Zeker Nico en wat dacht je van die Engelse namen, om van te smullen, figuurlijk gesproken uiteraard. Alhoewel ze deze soms ook in de soep gooien als ik het goed gelezen had.
