Judas Ear Mushroom Glossary Term
not yet rated
(Scientific Name: Auricularia polytricha) A type of mushroom that resembles a large ear when it is fresh and grows as large as half a foot. The surface of the mushroom is purplish-gray in color and the flesh is a dark purplish gray to almost black in color. It has very little flavor, but is used mainly for its firm, gelatinous texture and for the color. With a firm, almost rubbery texture, it may be best to slice it into small bits in order to make it more easily chewed and digested. The mushroom is available both fresh and dried. Judas' Ear mushrooms are also known as Tree Ear and Wood Ear mushrooms.
