10 pounds of fresh lion’s mane makes 1 pound of dried Mushrooms.
Hericiumerinaceus also called Lion’s Mane Mushroom, Satyr’s Beard, Bearded Tooth Mushroom, Bearded Hedgehog Mushroom, pompom mushroom,Bearded Tooth Fungus, or pom pom mushroom. They will have some debris from the woods. They are considered a gourmet mushroom by many people. They are said to have a seafood-like flavor,somewhat like the taste of shrimp or lobster, but it is not an overwhelming flavor. So if you are allergic to shell fish this is a great substitute. They are said to have medicinal values as well, but we cannot say anything about that due to legalities. We recommend you research the medicinal benefits though. Dried mushrooms will last for many years if you freeze as soon as you receive them. After opening, transfer into a freezer bag or food saver bag.
You can eat them as a meal, a tea, a tincture and an extract.
