Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus)

produces large, bright orange, multi-layered fruiting bodies with a texture reminiscent of chicken.

----

When cooked, these mushrooms are juicy, succulent, and meaty with a mild, lemony aroma.

---

Chicken of the woods can be difficult to cultivate, and is therefore recommended for enthusiast growers who have had some success with other more advanced species or are looking to experiment and try new methods.

---

Because chicken of the woods is not a strong competitor, it requires a different cultivation strategy.

Inoculation works best when logs are steam sterilized, incubated and colonized in filter patch bags, then removed from bags and partially buried in a shaded spot.

----

RECOMMENDED USE:

  • Chicken of the woods sawdust spawn is only recommended for log projects.
  • One bag of sawdust spawn will reliably inoculate 20 logs.

Chicken of the Woods log chart:

BEST WOOD SPECIES* White Oak, Red Oak, Bur Oak
OTHER SUITABLE SPECIES None recommended
AVOID All other woods


Upon receiving your spawn:

Remove it from the shipping box as soon as possible. Then, unfold the top of the bag, making room for air space. It's also important to check and confirm that the filter patch is not obstructed. This will help the organism breathe and continue to thrive!

*Ideal project size:

  • Plug spawn is ideal for smaller projects of 1-10 logs, though some log cultivators will use them for larger projects

*That's not mold, it's mycelium!

  • Your kit includes plug spawn colonized with mushroom mycelium. It may appear covered with a soft, white, mold-like substance - that's the mushroom mycelium!
  • It is completely normal.
  • The mycelium of some species is more prominent than others

*TOOLS YOU WILL NEED:

To grow on logs using plug spawn, you will need:

*CULTIVATION:

  • Click here to download our pamphlet on growing mushrooms on logs, stumps, and totems.

*INOCULATION:

  • Chicken of the Woods does best in oak logs.
  • However, it should be noted that Chicken of the Woods is prone to being out-competed by other fungi. For this reason, we recommend the following:
  • To limit competition and increase the chances of success, we strongly recommend sterilizing 8" by 8" segments of oak log in a pressure cooker or steam sterilizer before inoculation. Incubate your sterilized log segments for a few months in XL sealed filter patch bags until they are completely colonized.
  •  After colonization period, logs should be removed from bags and partially buried under 2 inches of top soil. The mushrooms will fruit from logs and emerge out of the soil.
  • (You can sterilize your log segments in a 22 qt or larger pressure cooker such as an All-American.)

*STORING:

  • If you don't plan to use your Chicken of the Woods sawdust spawn immediately, you can refrigerate your spawn for up to 6 months..

*COOKING:

  • Be sure to harvest chicken of the woods mushrooms when young to avoid a brittle texture.
  • When cooked, they have a meaty, slightly lemony, flavor with a texture similar to chicken.
  • The tougher outer pieces are best dried and used in soups or risottos or ground down to make rubs.
  • The more tender, center pieces are delicious when sauteed with garlic, onions, salt, and olive oil. (A splash of white wine is nice, too!)

*INGREDIENTS:

  • All our spawn is made using organic cultures from our own culture bank.
  • Our sawdust spawn is handmade from a blend of locally sourced, all-natural, organic, and non-GMO woods and supplements from farms and forests in New England and North America. 

*CAUTIONS & CONSIDERATIONS:

  • If you’re going to consume home-grown mushrooms, make sure to cook your fresh mushrooms thoroughly with heat.
  • If it is your first time eating this species, it is best to start with a small amount to check for allergies, even if cooked.
