How do you normally prepare these for consumption?
Ling Zhi/Ganoderma are very bitter, its best to dilute them quite a bit aside from he aforementioned powdering and capsulizing there are many many products that have had Ganoderma added. People make Gano-Beer, coffee, cookies/biscuits, and even Tequila.

very nice mushrooms! Any idea what species they are? Never see such yellow Lingzhi before.
We pick it a lot too. but here we have different species (Asia). we have grown before and look at grown lots at our new farm when we build mushroom house.
I would be interested to know about contamination control in other tropical countries like Costa Rica if people wanted to share their experience with it. Here i think we will use logs, but maybe sawdust mixed with farm waste as well.
if you have trouble breaking it up, cut it fresh. all commercial reishi is cut in to slices when fresh then dried. large chunks can get hard, and break blenders so be careful.
