Monday Mystery

Here's a good one. Last week, my sister, Jeanne sent me a picture. She wanted me to help her solve a mystery.
She wanted to know what this growth on her oak tree was. I had no idea, so I looked it up.

It's called "Chicken of the Woods." It's actually an edible mushroom. I don't think I could eat it, but if you are interested in cooking it, here's a recipe:
Chicken of the Woods.

What ever you do, don't try to eat it raw in a salad. The twins* texted us that apparently, on the show Naked and Afraid, someone had to leave the show because they got so sick from eating it raw. I guess the mystery here is whether they had to leave naked too!

Has anyone eaten this? It's supposed to taste like chicken, hence the name. Let me know.

*I just realized that we think of the "twins" as one person. I think it was actually Jennifer that sent the text (a good guess because Janice doesn't know how to operate her phone very well). Either way, it was the two of them who watched the show. So there. They are one person!

  1. Oh goodness, no I have never seen anything like it and I would be too scared to try and eat it - just in case! I can't imagine a mushroom that tastes of chicken, and it really is weird looking!
