The Zen of Chicken of the Woods – New Video

Here’s a video on ethical and sustainable harvest of the Latiporus mushrooms, of which there are 2 or 3 species in North America; namely laetiporus sulphureus, and laetiporus cincinnatus. Commonly known as the chicken of the woods mushroom, this is a beautiful, and relatively easy mushroom to identify. They are amazing in a stir fry, and research has actually been shown that they are active against staph infections, ” All strains demonstrated antimicrobial activity against a wide spectrum of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria during agar and submerged cultivation including methicillin-resistant strain of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and glycopeptide-resistant strain of Leuconostoc mesenteroides.” –
