Wood Ear (Tree Ear)
Considered an edible and medicinal mushroom. A closely related species is cultivated in Asia and can be found in the United States in Asian markets. In Chinese, its name is “Hei mu-er.” You may have eaten it in Chinese hot and sour soup. The wood ear has been reported to positively affect blood coagulation and decrease blood cholesterol levels. Since it is a popular edible mushroom in China, it may contribute to the low incidence of heart disease there. (source: Missouri Department of Conservation)
