Top Edibles Cauliflower Mushrooms Sparassis spathulata, Sparassis americana Many books show pictures of this mushroom in a basket, on a plate, or being displayed proudly in someone’s hands. The first reason is to show the impressive size that this mushroom reaches, but the second may be that hunters who find this delicacy aren’t willing to show anyone exactly where in the woods they found it! Habitat: Cauliflower Mushrooms are saprobes, getting their nutrients from the buried roots of dying and dead trees. Found alone or in groups in mixed woods next to deciduous and coniferous trees. Description: This large, brain-like cluster mushroom is easy to recognize. It is made up of a mass of creamy white to tan-colored folds growing from a branching base. Some describe it as looking like a pile of egg noodles. Large examples may be up to 12 inches across, but most specimens are much smaller. This mushroom doesn’t have gills or teeth but a smooth surface on one side of the folded flesh to release its spores. Two species are found in our area; both look similar and both are highly sought-after edibles. S. spathulata
