Devil's Urn is a cup fungus that fruits in ealy spring, right around the time morel mushrooms do. You could say that the devil's urn is an indicator species, once you see them, it is time to go looking for morels. 

They fruit on a variety of hardwood logs and sticks, and always on the ground, which allows for plenty of moisture to support these woody little fungi. 

Are they edible? Yes. I have eaten them before, stuffed with cheeze. And yes, they taste like cardboard. 

Why do we have them listed on our website? First off, I think they are very cool fungi, and they are nutritious. You can add them to stews and soups, and remove them once your dish is cooked. Kind of like a bay leaf. 

Approximately 100 plugs by weight.
