Anyone on here go looking for morel mushrooms? The season is getting closer to us
In our neck of the woods, we are already finding a few.
When the leaves on the redbud trees are the size of a mouse's ear and right after a rain we start looking.
The snow we recently got put a slow-down on the mushrooms, but rain today and tomorrow along with 70s temps on Tuesday, they will be popping up everywhere!
Quote:My DH LOVES Morel Mushrooms! Unfortunately they do not grow here in Florida he couldn't wait to pick them when we lived in Michigan though!
Last year he got a wonderful surprise when his Mother overnight expressed him a few pounds of the wonderful morsels though. Of course they were gone in one sitting, cleaned, fried and GONE LOL...
I believe fried is the best way. I love them so much! Also Pheasants back is good to.
I haven't been shrooming in a couple years. Used to go after Chantrelles, Oysters, and Boletes. I've never found true morels, just false Morels. I think I'll have to go again this year. Although it's still a little early here.
Dh has a patch in our back yard, he tried them last year and enjoyed them, and then he found 4-6 patches he missed!
You can fill them with cream cheese and then fry them. He has not had them, but when you put cheese + food=
hee heee he.
What do you folks do with them? Personally I don't care for any mushroom
He is talking about doing some major hunting this spring. Apparently if you leave the stem, they will grow back and then reproduce if you can leave them !
I usually dry fry them to get the moisture out and have them with steak.
And Yes, you should never pull them out. (Use a sharp knife and cut the stalk.) It can damage the mycelium(roots) and they won't come back. Some of the commercial pickers will descend onto an area with rakes and completely destroy the shroom habitat.
We find the occasional morel. My uncle used to have a dog that he trained to find them. That dog was cool!
my momma is one of the best Mushroom Hunters around!!!
Ive went with her for years.. I never hardly EVER can spot them. lol - But I love them
I will be hunting the elusive moral, but I also pick a few more, only know Bohemian names, not even going to try to attempt the spelling.
It was a family outing growing up. And have had many relatives that only disclose their spots on their deathbeds, if you were worthy.
