Moving forward, let’s talk about deer truffles.
These fungi exist a few inches below the surface of the earth in a mutualistic association with various trees. What’s more, deer truffles are valued food sources for a variety of forest-dwelling animals.
Because they grow underground, deer truffles are among the most elusive fungi in the world. However, there is a simple trick to finding them, and if you’re interested in finding your very own deer truffles this season, check out the brand new video!
Thanks for reading and watching, and as always, thank you for your support!
