Product Name: Juda's Ear Mushrooms, Wood Ear mushrooms  

Scientific Name: Auricularia auricula-judae  

General

Wood ear mushrooms are known by many names. They're often called black, jelly, or wood ear fungus, and may also be known as cloud ear, Judas's ear, jelly ear or kikurage mushrooms.

All of these mushrooms belong to the Auricularia genus, while wood ear mushrooms are specifically Auricularia auricula. As their name implies, wood ear mushrooms look like ears and can grow on many types of wood or other plants. The Judas Ear grows throughout the year, on living and dead trees. It is most commonly found in elders. It is a common and increasingly widespread species. 

Description

The name originates from the tradition that Judas hanged himself on an elder tree after he had betrayed Jesus. The elder is the Judas Ear’s favourite host plant. The fungus also resembles an ear. Dried Wood Ear mushrooms have the appearance of black trumpet mushrooms, the often large mushroom appearing thin and frail, curled tightly into itself exposing its snowy underside against its black cap. When reconstituted, its colors blend together, turning it into a large wavy silvery black mushroom paddle nearly seven times the size of its dried form.

The Wood Ear resembles the crunchy and gelatinous consistency of jellyfish or squid. It has a delicate forest aroma and it is virtually absent of flavor, utilized solely for its textural properties.     

Storage and shelf life
