Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus Sulphureus)

An exciting mushroom to find in the wild, the Chicken of the Woods is bright yellow with a texture of cooked chicken. I have cultures found on oak, beech and willow but prefer my beech strain from Aberdeenshire which is now happily grown in a wide variety of sites throughout the UK.

This is a big mushroom so you need a big log or stump and a spot which will not get too dry. Do not eat raw as it can cause gastric upsets if uncooked.
