Those look awesome! Just found a couple patches on the property. Letting them go a day or 2 longer to get a little bigger. Raining today! We had a few we picked yesterday for breakfast. Morels are so freaking good! Pics to follow.
Couldn't wait till the rain stopped. So Wifebelly braved the rain so we can have a few more with supper! Mmmmm, so good!
Chicken of the woods. I vac sealed and froze about four lbs the other night. A very under-utilized mushroom IMO. Very mild. I've only done a couple recipes but dice them ultra fine and mix taco seasoning, you can't tell the difference from a chicken taco.
Chanterelles from our woods. About ten pounds this spring.
Lots of Shrooms around my place.
I bought a book, to help ID the shrooms, and got about 1/2 way thru it, when I summed up the entire book.
There are 3 types of Mushrooms:
1) Those you can eat
2) Those that will make you dead
3) Those that will make you wish you were dead
I haven't picked any, and honestly don't see myself doing so anytime soon.
Be careful out there folks. My girlfriend's brother is finishing his PhD in Ecology, specializing in 'shrooms so I feel safe selecting edibles with them.
I have hunted black velvets (beef steaks) around heresince I was 12 years old. Usually from August till mid September.
Wherendo you guys find your morels (corn cob)??
Lots of dead ash, elm, and apple trees here with morels underneath
Cross posted from the cooking forum. We're peaking for fall mushrooms here right now. This is a great year so far. We're going to try pickling some of these.
Chicken and Lions Mane from last weeks hike.
We pickled some of the Maitakes. To say I'm super excited about these is a huge understatement.
I used to listen to Frank Zappa when I ate "shrooms" !
