In the newsletter I announced that we've seen some growth with chicken of the woods, which is exciting. Chicken of the woods is a versatile mushroom, and can be prepared in many different ways, similar to its namesake.
I was slightly surprised, however, to see a recipe for beer battered chicken of the woods. I suppose it shouldn't surprise me, I just hadn't thought about breading and frying it. As soon as I can get my hands on some, I'm going to be trying this.
This recipe would be great for a get together, or even just a family night. My kids love breaded foods, so I'm curious to see how they'd react to this. I wonder if they'd be able to tell the difference and realize it's not really chicken. Maybe I'll write a post after they've tried it to let you guys know how my picky eaters did with it.
Now I just need to get my hands on some. Is it summer yet?
