Hi everyone! I have a strange tip for you today. not strange, but different. I want to tell you about turkey tail mushrooms. Being that Thanksgiving is coming in the US, I thought now would be a good time. My brother Sammy is a Cat Scout and a while ago he had to watch a movie about mushrooms. I figured I could learn something so I watched it too. In the documentary, they talk about turkey tail mushrooms and how they boost immunity and can even help get rid of some cancers.
They are kind of rubbery so you can’t just fry them up and eat them like a lot of other mushrooms. You just clean them off, chop them up and simmer in water for an hour to make tea. If you try to find your own, be careful as there are some that look the same, but are fake and can make you sick. Real ones have pores on the underside. If you do want to find your own, please watch the video.
Mom made the tea and said it tasted like mushrooms- not what you want in a tea. She said it would be good in soup.

Next week I will tell you all about wishbones and how you can still have one to wish on even if you are a vegan or vegetarian.
