Fistulina Hepatica - Beefsteak Fungus, Oak Tongue

Picture Type: Side view
Month: October
Time: Early evening
Terrain: Deciduous woodland
Substrate: Wood
Tree type: Oak
This was a very young fresh specimen and was very pale and soft but bled profusely when cut. I took this one home for the pot and it was quite good. I soaked it in milk first as this is supposed to remove bitterness
