I went out today to see if I could scrape together a quick lunch and with a particular favourite in mind I went to a dead standing elder...
A quick look showed just what I was after
A Lovely crop of Jews Ear fungus, so I gathered a quick bundle and then back home to the kitchen
Just 3 ingredients needed, the Jews ear, some olive oil and crusty bread
Coarsely chop the mushroom
Add some olive oil to the pan and add the bread and the mushroom and lightly fry on a moderate heat for about 3 minutes
The mushroom will fizzle and pop, but as soon as the bread has lightly browned, remove from the pan and sandwich the mushroom between the two halfs and enjoy! This is one of my all time favourites!
