there are 2 more that I found too but I left them there for now.
Me and hubby used a small hatchet to remove them from the Birch trees,
taking the opportunity to show my oldest son how to use a hatchet safely.
These are the 3 we collected
I put 1 piece in the crock pot over night on warm I will wait till the water is reduced by half and put it in a mason jar in the fridge, and repeat 2 more times after that the tea is to week. I will mix them all together to make a more standardized dose.
I used this mushroom last winter to help with my chronic back pain, it did work some and something is better than nothing :)
I used about a quarter cup mixed with my coffee in the morning. The taste goes well with coffee kinda chocolaty coffee taste yummy :) for something that looks non edible.
