Moving forward, let’s talk about the garlic mushroom. This edible fungus smells and tastes like garlic, and you can use it as a substitute for garlic in meals.
Strangely enough, this alliaceous mushroom hasn’t made its way into supermarkets, though fortunately it can be found growing profusely underneath coniferous and hardwood trees around the world. Perhaps it’s even growing in your backyard.

Thanks for reading and watching, and as always, thank you for your support!
