Turkey Tail

“It looked like the world was covered in a cobbler crust of brown sugar and cinnamon.” — Sarah Addison Allen

“Humans are, by nature, pattern-seeking animals, and we are quite adept at telling stories about patterns whether they exist of not.” — Michael Shermer

Not a delicate pastry crust, but a fungusturkey tail, to be specific.  So named due to its bands of various shades of cream, grey and brown, patterned to clearly resemble a miniature turkey’s tail, these shelf-like fungi are not particularly palatable. They may be enjoyed as tea and many have been found to fight infection and different types of cancers.
