    I am trying to find the site .. I was on earlier they had these on there and said they were just one type of morels.. I am heading to a friends who knows which are safe ans which arent...So we'll see.... All though it would be fun to make a lil special spaghetti with mushrooms [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] : [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They do look like morels! You're so lucky! We have only gotten papinkys in our yard in recent years. We do find some jalunkys under pine trees, also - they're the ones the deer eat.

    I have been researching all day at work today.. i wish I could remember the name.. If you want to hunt just look online for a mushroom hunter club and I can garuntee someone on there would love to mentor... The few i talked to today were really nice and very passionate about shrooms... And I really wont eat them until I know... Lets just say in my younger days i found out the hard way about the other kinds .. It was like [​IMG] [​IMG] then [​IMG] then [​IMG] Not all that fun

    True morels have a hollow stem, False morels have an almost solid stem. Cut them in half long way's to find out. False morels can make you sick.
