Wood Ear Stir-Fry

We have a friend who is very much a coastal forager and is now exploring the delights of Fungus foraging. There are a few fungi which are edible and really don’t have any toxic look-alikes. Wood Ears (Auricularia auricula-Judae) are one of these and a great starters foraged fungus. We had a donation yesterday and cobbled this stir-fry together to go with our Giant Toad In The Hole.

A cautionary note:- Wood Ears have a nasty habit of spitting quite dramatically when fried. Stand back! They also act as a flavour sponge, which is cool!
