I believe we can all agree that the Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscaria) is, by far, the most recognizable mushroom in the world. It is the Poster-boy for trouble, the Icon for poisonous mushrooms.However, not many people know that it's widely consumed throughout the northern hemisphere, especially in northern Europe and Asia. A simple 30 minute parboiling turns this unmistakable red warning sign into a delicious food.So why is it that a perfectly edible mushroom is the cover face for the bad... continue reading

The shamrock, not to be confused with the 4-leaf clover, is an important symbol in the Irish culture.Legend has it that Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, has used the shamrock in the fields of Ireland to explain Trinity and convert pagans to Christianity. Three leaves, but still one plant.Though not theologically flawless, this analogy still lives on & is used to teach children about the Trinity.Happy St. Patrick's Dayeveryone :) continue reading
