Jew's Ear - very strange

I don't know what this is about, or why it is called "Jew's Ear"... very strange...


  1. Wikipedia to the rescue:

    "Auricularia auricula-judae (syn. Auricularia auricula, Hirneola auricula-judae) is a fungus, commonly known as Judas's ear fungus or Jew's Ear, the name from which it derives the "judae" in its scientific name, or as the jelly ear fungus. It was said that Judas hanged himself on an elder tree, which is the origin of the name.[2] The term 'Jew's Meat' was a deprecatory term used for all fungi in the Middle Ages[1][2] Snow fungus, another edible fungus which is white in color, is a separate species, Tremella fuciformis."

  2. Yeah - yuck. Wouldn't an instant anti-fungus be better?e
