The Apricot Jelly Mushroom is a beautiful little gem that is very easily recognized. It’s the color of salmon flesh and looks a bit like a human tongue sticking out of the ground. You will find it growing on well-rotted wood in conifer forests, it is quite common on Vancouver Island. It can grow up to 15 cm high but is usually smaller than that, it is funnel-shaped but always has a slot down one side.

Apricot Jelly Fungus is edible and some say it’s quite good, while others say it’s quite bland, I suggest you try it and decide for yourself.

Would you buy us a coffee?
