White Fungus, Wood Ear, Jew Ear, Jelly Ear - Primal?
Hope I didn't throw you off with the title of this post :D
[URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremella_fuciformis"]White fungus[/URL] and [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auricularia_auricula-judae"]wood ear[/URL] (the latter also known as "Jew Ear" or "Jelly Ear") are common in a lot of Asian dishes and while it is far from a staple in my diet, I'm just wondering about how primal it is. Usually it comes packaged in bags, and to reconstitute it you have to soak it in water for a few hours. When I do have it, usually it's in soup, but there are many other ways of preparing it as well (stir-fry, desserts, etc.) [URL="http://veganlogy.com/2012/07/15/black-white-fungus-sugar-free-smoothie/"]Here[/URL] is a recipe of its use as a primary ingredient for a smoothie :)
