On my blog of June 16th, 2015:
I wrote about discovering that the black crusty mass on our birch tree was something called Chaga that was thought by many to be a miracle cure. About a month ago I had our birch tree cut down because it had died last summer, and so I got to take a closer look at Chaga. It is about 8 inches (20cm) in diameter.
The photo above shows a close-up of its exterior, and the other photo shows what it looks like on the inside.
I guess I will somehow grind it up so I can brew some of my own miracle tea.
