Gorgeous!

We harvest wild reishi (ling zhi) in Costa Rica, as well as other wild medicinal mushrooms.
We also are cultivating reishi and other mushroom crops from spawn.

Aza,

How do you normally prepare these for consumption?

The dried mushrooms are usually powdered and then served as a tea or taken in gel-caps.

Beautiful Ganoderma there.

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.

I find them occasionally here in Georgia. For some strange reason, they seem to like crawl spaces, although I have seen them growing on stumps that were in almost perpetual shade.

Upstate SC near NC.

Roast the mushrooms for 30 minutes in the 300s, then soak for 2 hours, then strain. Add warm kettle water w/ honey. Enjoy -

How Does everyone here typically go about pulverizing a harder woody mushroom? I've heard meat grinders but am interested in seeing other methods.

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.
