Buy Wood Ear Mushroom - Foraged
About Mad for Mushrooms

Mad for Mushrooms is dedicated to the proliferation and learning of wild foods and natural ecosystems. Predominantly foraged, I focus on offering unusual, and wildly delicious foodstuffs for regional chefs and restaurants.  Collaboration is essential to the work, outside of foraging and sharing knowledge, I am interested in further product development, and alternative applications of biomimetics.

By participating in Foraged Market, we hope to reach a wider audience, exciting more minds and mouths with nutritionally dense wild food products.  The majority of items will be sourced in the forests and hillsides of the Ohio River Valley.  However, when indicated, certain items have been successfully wild-grown in my organic, vegan, urban garden to offer a greater variety.   

Please visit the shop to see what we hope to discover, and feel free to reach out with any questions.

Fresh wood ear mushroom – (Auricularia auricula-judae) 

Often used in Chinese Cuisine, these are very difficult to find for sale fresh.  However, the texture is far superior – exciting and appealing when fresh, rather than dried as is most common.  They are highly nutritious, chock full of B vitamins, and according to scientific studies, help to control cholesterol, gut and heart health.  They add a wonderful texture to food — really an under appreciated delicacy, waiting for a creative application.

As with all mushrooms – these must be thoroughly cooked, and should be stored in a loose cloth or paper and allowed to breathe, do not store fresh mushrooms in plastic.  They have a much longer shelf life than many fresh and wild mushrooms.

Feel free to inquire with questions.
