The Ruby of the Mushroom World: Pink Oyster Mushroom

I came across this gem at my favourite mushroom seller Fred. A big fan of pleurotus mushrooms, commonly called ‘oyster mushrooms’, I was really curious when I first saw the pink oyster mushroom. The ‘Pleurotus djamor’ is smaller than its usual white and offwhite siblings, and it simply looks beautiful.

Cordyceps Militaris: Your best chance to living forever

ordyceps Militaris seems to be a more sustainable and affordable alternative to Ophiocordyceps Sinensis, unless you are filthy rich. But you have to be realistic about what you can get out of Cordyceps Militaris, because it may not be as effective as its wild ancestor. Furthermore, you have to be careful about contamination by consuming only fresh or dried whole Cordyceps Militaris, not in supplement form.
