Picked fresh from a fallen tree, lovely lemony fragrance. It's like nothing else! Carefully air / sundried whole. No stems. Excellent aroma. Make yourself fresh filé powder, or come up with other uses. Great for flavoring soups or cream sauces.


This is intended for culinary purposes in limited quantity.  The leaves are also considered a mild empathogen, meaning they promote feelings of closeness, affection and empathy.


This is for a sealed packet with 1/2 an ounce / .5oz

Shipping can be combined with other products for minimum order requirements and will be priced accordingly.

Mad for Mushrooms is dedicated to the proliferation and learning of wild foods and natural ecosystems. Predominantly foraged, I focus on offering unusual, and wildly delicious foodstuffs for regional chefs and restaurants. Collaboration is essential to the work, outside of foraging and sharing knowledge, I am interested in further product development, and alternative applications of biomimetics.

By participating in Foraged Market, we hope to reach a wider audience, exciting more minds and mouths with nutritionally dense wild food products. The majority of items will be sourced in the forests and hillsides of the Ohio River Valley. However, when indicated, certain items have been successfully wild-grown in my organic, vegan, urban garden to offer a greater variety.

Please visit the shop to see what we hope to discover, and feel free to reach out with any questions.
