First we’re an invasive weed, now an edible fungus. Jews sure get a bum wrap in the plant world.
“Jew’s-ear (Auricularia auricula-judae) – widely distributed edible fungus shaped like a human ear and growing on decaying wood. ”
Fungus. Decaying wood. Great associations.
The good news is we’re low in Sodium, and very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol!
It is apparently a tasty fungus, and is popular in Japanese and in Chinese food.
Mmmm, mmm, Jewlicious!
