Bear's Head Tooth Mushroom

This photo was taken last fall. It's what the bear's head tooth looks like when it's fresh - and un-nibbled. This mushroom is said to be edible and although not choice, is reportedly "very good if cooked slowly." I've got a few standards that I like (chicken mushrooms, puffballs, hen-of-the-woods, various boletes); this one just seems more decorative that plate-worthy to me.

  1. Yeah I googled images of it when you posted the pic of the half eaten one. Reminds me of coral; such a beautiful structure. Maybe this year I'll jump into mushroom hunting.
