Morels

This has been a good spring for morel mushrooms. We were able to experience spring in Missouri where we found a good batch and then returning to Minnesota we found a whole lot more. They are surprising little things, popping up overnight both in expected and unexpected places. The surprise find was in the lawn, lots of big yellows but we also found them on slopes under dying elms as was expected as well. In one spot we met another forager who had trained his lab to sniff them out. Needless to say there were not many left there. The bounty is always short lived so having been in two states helped prolong the season.

Our favourite way of eating them is dipped in egg wash then seasoned flour and fried in butter. Soooo good. Here is a picture of my husband with his days find:
