“Pom Pom” or “Lion’s mane” is the common name given to a group of mushrooms of the genus Hericium. Lion’s mane mushrooms have a coral-like shape, with spindly branches that shoot out from the stem. They are white, pinkish or creamy yellow in color, and are noted for their fresh crab-like flavor and texture when cooked.
