According to legend, after his shameful betrayal, Judas repented and hanged himself from an elder tree. Since this strange ear-shaped mushroom grows mainly on old elder trees, it was initially called Judas’s ear. It is now more widely known as wood ear.
The wood ear is rich in iron, potassium and magnesium. This mushroom is also used for its crunchy texture and its colour.
