Albatrellus ovinus Koutl. & Pouz., Polyporaceae

The Sheep Polypore is an excellent wild edible mushroom. It usually grows in large clusters or fairy rings. This mushroom species is irregularly shaped and white to yellowish in color. The Sheep Polypore is a highly valued wild edible mushroom in Scandinavian countries. They are delectable when simply sautéed in butter, changing their color from white to light yellow. They hold up their firm texture and wonderfully mild aroma.

Wild edible mushrooms have anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-reducing properties. They enhance the immune system and they assist in reducing blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

We wild-harvest our Sheep Polypore from August through October in the wilderness of Northern Saskatchewan.
