Saturday's hunt

Last Saturday, I had the chance to go mushroom hunting on my own. I found some more chanterelles, a cauliflower mushroom, and a stand of reishi. I was reeally excited to find a reishi stand, as it is an amazing medicinal mushroom, used in teas, for immune support. Some Chinese medicine doctors consider it as valuable as ginseng. Looking forward to heading out again tomorrow morning with Jon for a hunt. Will post pictures from the harvest.

  1. Mushroom hunting? Sounds exciting! And the good part was you were able to find loads of shrooms in the area, particularly the reishi mushroom. And you are correct; reishi mushroom offers numerous health benefits. Aside from the fact that it boosts your immune system, it also helps lower your cholesterol level and blood pressure, which is good for your cardiovascular health. [Mack Shepperson]
