I have located what appears to be Wood Ear but it was growing on the 
ground in wood chips.  It is in the shape of a bowel and jelly like 
in look and texture.  I found it growing during some cool weather 
50-60 degrees and lots of rain.  I have picked wood ear in the forest
on trees but never on the ground. Could this be just a different 
strain?  Also if anyone has good recipes for cooking wood ear 
please post them!
