Mans first friend?

Do you remember the story reported a few years ago about a 5000 year old body found in the Italian alps? it was of a man, now called ‘Otzi’, who had in his possession a Birch Polypore, or Bracket Fungus. Was he just a mushroom enthusiast? or was he up to something else? Well, the Bracket fungus can be used as:

  • A tinder for fire making
  • An antiseptic plaster
  • A razor strop
  • An antibiotic tea
  • A holder for hot embers (to make fire starting really easy)

A very useful Mushroom. Grows on dead birch trees.
