JEWS EAR FUNGUS


Otherwise commonly known as Judas's ear fungus, or as the jelly ear fungus. This jelly fungus is conspicuously ear shaped, ranging from purple to dark brown or black in colour with a rubbery texture, and most often found on dead elder trees. It was said that Judas hanged himself on an elder tree, which is the origin of the name.
This species is used often in Asian cooking.

Again, this was found on our walk around the Warburg nature reserve in Oxfordshire.
