I learned something new today from a fellow blogger, Mike. You can see his post at http://mike585.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/witches-butter/

I have seen this gelatinous mess before, but never knew what it was called. The official name is Tremella Mesenterica, but I think Witches’ Butter is much more descriptive and much more appealing.

I put on my boots and headed into the woods (just outside my back door) and found some home grown Witches’ Butter.

Tremella Mesenterica, also known as Witches' Butter.
