December Mushrooms of the Month

Welcome to the December installment of Mushrooms of the Month. Frigid weather is upon us, but some fungi species can thrive quite well during these freezing months. So if you are out for a cold weather hike or enjoying a winter vacation, keep a keen eye to the forest floor as you never know what winter charms you may find!

In the meanwhile, we can enjoy some “fun” moments in fungi. Below are some experiences we have encountered while searching for delicious edibles in the woods these past years. And if you like these, there are many more to come in the next winter installments of mushrooms of the month. Stay warm, enjoy some CordyChi® hot chocolate, and thaw out some of those delicious edibles you harvested this past spring & summer!
