Ganoderma lucidum is hard, woody and not palatable when fresh.  Extracts
are used as an elixer by some.  

See for a tea
recipe.  Arora in Mushrooms Demystified (page 578) describes a process
of soaking the mushroom in wine for several months then drinking the
'liquid essence'.

You can find a blurb about the medicinal properties associated with this
mushroom at:
