Photo of the Day


 

This is not an ear, although it looks and feels like just like one – it’s actually the fungus Auricularia auricula-judae, named after Judas who deceived Jesus Christ.

Found all over the world, it is edible but not very palatable. It used to be used in Europe to relieve a sore throat, and is still put in soups in Asia for colds and fevers.
