Name That Fungus!
Before we talk about fungi - first things first -
SLURPEES are F*R*E*E today at 7/11 stores! That's right - today - 7/11 - you can get f*r*e*e small Slurpees at your local 7/11. Just thought you might want to know in case you were in need of a sugar rush and don't have any Kool-Aid on hand.
Okay, on to the fungus . . .
We found this at the base of a tree in our backyard (in SC). At first, we thought some coral had mysteriously made its way to our yard from the ocean. It's kinda pretty and really BIG - about 12" x 6". When we got closer, we could see it was some kind of mushroom, we think. Does anyone know the name of it? It kind of looks like brain coral, but doesn't really look like the pictures of brain mushroom. We thought HUUUUGE morel, but our online research was not definitive. Any mycologists out there? Do we saute it in some olive oil or leave it alone or something else? Is it, um, magic???
