Rather than gills, Turkey Tails have pores. In contrast to many other edible mushrooms, Turkey Tail mushrooms are usually consumed in powder form. Its tough texture makes them unsuitable for whole consumption. Tea is the most popular way to consume Turley tail, no powdering is necessary. Please note, making turkey tail tea isn’t as easy as just pouring hot water and allowing it to steep. To achieve the maximum benefit, it's recommended to simmer turkey tails for at least one hour. That will help to extract as many beneficial compounds as possible. Start with five cups of water and one cup of turkey tails. The water will evaporate and you should end up with concentrated turkey tail tea. Then you can simply strain the mushrooms out of the water and drink it. If you are preparing mushroom tea this way, powdering your mushrooms isn’t necessary. You can also crush the dried turkey tail into a powder using a food processor, blender or mortar and pestle. Turkey tail powder is an easy ingredient to simmer into soups and stews for an extra kick of nutrients. Turkey Tail, as well as other mushrooms, should be cooked before consumption.
