FLASHBACK # 101

    For anyone who has spent any time travelling the back roads of most logging divisions you are bound to have come across what is commonly called "Orange Peel" fungus.  Aleuria aurantia looks very much like someone has just peeled a very ripe orange and strewn the peels on the ground.   Most books list it as Non-Poisionous which makes me feel better because I've eaten some of these raw. 

    All they need is a bit of rinsing then slice them for a salad or any other dish that calls for mushrooms.  They have two drawbacks ... it takes a LOT of patience to get enough to make it worthwhile AND they are out at the same time as Chanterelles.  Which would you target?
