Does it have to be eaten?

😂😅😂😅😂😅 Just playing my friend. 😊

I am not adventurous when it comes to putting things in my mouth. No thank you on slimy mushrooms! 😝 I guess I've had some on a veggie pizza... Cooked and mixed with many other pizza flavors. 😅

I like all mushrooms, but here's a story about mushrooms that may be a bit more interesting.

As a 14-15 year old, I used to go wilderness camping with friends. (OK Kent in Southern England is not much of a wilderness, but camped in dark oak woodland on the top of the North Downs seemed pretty detached from the rest of the world for a few days.)

One night, I noticed a blue/green glow from the ground nearby, it was actually very beautiful. As I got used to staring into the dark it was obvious that a lot of glowing was going on.

It was a fungus, called touchwood. It's called that, because the Royal Navy used to collect it, dry it and (because it smoulders for ages, once set alight) use it as the agent for firing cannons.

Anyway, I pulled some out of the ground, but within half an hour it had stopped glowing. It only glows in situ.

Apparently quite a number of funghi glow in the dark, and no-one really knows why. (Despite what you might read on Wikipaedia).

Silly answer, sorry, but perhaps interesting.

I love mushrooms, all shapes and sizes, cooked many ways.  We once deep fried some in tempura batter that were exceptionally tasty!

I love mushrooms!  I'm always on the lookout for morels when I'm on a walk. 

The most unusual I've eaten is probably wood ears.
