Day 113 Shaggy Inkcap Mushroom

Inkcap Mshroom According to our local mushroom expert Gary Goldman, this appears to be the Shaggy Ink Cap Mushroom, (scientifically known as the Coprinus comatus). This mushroom is edible, but needs to be cooked and consumed before it deliquesces (turns into ink). The ink is what Coprinus ink used to made out of. It is said to have a delicate flavour.
