30 acres of those...... I'm cheating, it was in November.

My freezer is so full of those that I don't want to find more. They grow in the lanes we have cut all over our place, under the straw we never raked.
I use them on pizza & in quiches. And, yes, Mike loves quiche.

morels

John, those look scrumptious. I have a patient who makes a good part of her living up here collecting, canning and selling them to gourmet shops in the Chicago area. In your case I feel compelled to ask about the Elmer's Glue next to your stash. Is that an ingredient in your receipe for serving to guests with loose bowels?

Mushroom lover

Wow, great morels ... I'm jealous.

But here we get some pretty nice flushes of chantrelles. Here's a picture from last year's feast ...

Once in a while the black trumpets pop up too, which are nice when dried (and they keep a long time). But my favorites are the shaggy manes, which are like dandelions around here. They should be up any day now.

You folks need to clean up more often. You got fungus all over your cooking and storage containers!

You know, I never heard of picking wild mushrooms before, but about a month ago, Brandi's dad was telling us all about going out for the morels. I thought it was kind of strange, but you know since then, they had a special on it on the local news, I found serveral others that were interested, then John posts he's went hunting for mushrooms and this whole thread.

I must have grown up under a rock. Then again, it would make sense, I have a hard head....

How much wild mushroom picking is there in Chicago? That's for us country folks.
I taught Mike to pick mushrooms in Washington DC (or at least in the Beltway State Park). Let's say I picked, he ate. Scared at first.

I come from the boondocks, and have been picking mushrooms since I could walk - or close enough. It's a national sport in France: on sundays, you cannot find a place to park along the forests, all the city folks drive in droves, fighting for the chance to be the next casualty of mushroom poisoning. I'm quite safe, I like ony boletes.

Well as I said before, in life I learn everyday. Today was no exception!

Looks like hunting for mushrooms is very popular here too. In the Chicago area, we have these places, 40-100 or more at a time that are called Forest Preserves. With all the construction all around, it's really the last hold out of land that will never be built on. From my understanding, people go there all the time lately and get some real nice stuff.

I may start to look since I am beyond interested!

Ahh, yes hunting for mushrooms.
It can be a very spiritual thing. Tasty, too.

John,
My wife just had her yearly exotic plant sale and she had some one year old gensing roots for sale. She gets them from a friend who has acres of the stuff growing and who sells it. The friend told her that you actually have to spray it for wilt and that they have had to install cameras to surveil the area because they have caught people sneaking in to harvest the roots. People living across from them have ginsing growing up to the water's edge and boaters have tried to help themselves but were arrested instead. People are serious about that stuff in TN.

By the way, the mushrooms look great.
