The two brothers (have known them since they were kids) who live in the apartment below me have a large terrarium in their living room. They grow off-the-beaten-path mushrooms, in part as a project for David's 10-year old son who spends a few days a week with his dad. Last night David brought me a Lion's Mane mushroom. It looks a bit like a tennis ball-sized cauliflower floret. They look really interesting, but I have no experience with cooking/using them.

Anyone here know something about them or how to cook/use them?

Finally had time to check out YouTube; found this delicious-looking recipe for lion's mane mushrooms. Will make them Sunday and report back.

Don't know anything about Lion's Mane Mushrooms, have never heard of them.

Since my Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, have been researching a lot on the disease. Since there is technically no cure, there is a lot of research going on now that is showing a lot of promise in slowing the progression down in patients with Alzheimer's and Lewy Body Dementia in diet heavy in mushrooms. Shitake mushrooms in particular. I fix a lot of foods with different varieties and they have had an amazing positive effect on my Dad, to my surprise, even the neighbors noticed. The effects last about 4 days in mental improvement, coupled with his medication. It's my understanding that dementia is caused by a starvation in the brain, not getting the nutrients that it needs. I'll fix about two - three meals a month heavy in mushrooms for my Dad. I have noticed they can spike my blood pressure so I don't eat them as much. Just wanted to pass this along.
