This is the season for mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest!
It’s lobster mushroom, Hypomyces lactifluorum. So yum, in fact, some say it makes a better lobster broth than actual lobsters!
They’re actually not a mushroom at all, but rather a parasitic fungus that grows on another mushroom; usually a Russula brevipes, and then takes it over in a very zombie-like way.
It’s delicious regardless!
