FUNGUS OF THE MONTH

Flammulina velutipes aka Velvet Shank is a fairly common sight on stumps or ends of logs of broadleaved trees, usually in the winter months. It is also a good edible fungus, cultivated on bags of sawdust, in which case it surprisingly loses its lovely golden-brown colour and becomes pure white. One can hardly think of this form as the same fungus – but it is the same and is sold by its Japanese name of Enoki or Enokitake.
