Sauteed with butter & garlic, mmmmmm. Yes, you need to cook them toto, well you don't have to, but they taste way better fried.

You're welcome

My usual spots haven't hit yet. They are a bit deeper in the woods and today's find was in a prime early spot, south facing hill where they got plenty of sun. Overnight temps are getting warmer so hopefully that gets them really going. Last year sucked with the drought but the year before we found almost 20 lbs of them.

Hope to add a pic this weekend with my whole dining room table covered! YUM!

And then serve them with moose steak done with lots of garlic. What type of mushrooms are those. A popular variety here are called Chantrelles which don't look like yours or the whitish store bo't ones.

I don't think I've ever seen those around here. But after watching the movie Shrooms, you wont catch me collecting mushrooms anywhere but the produce aisle, lol.

There are way too many different types of mushrooms in my area that can either make you sick to your stomach or taste amazing. Unfortunately, I cannot tell the difference and get my shrooms from the store.

Good for you for being able to go out and get those tasty buggers! Wanna stop by NY and pick some for me? We have tons! All sorts of different colors too! (Although, I wouldn't eat them if I were you).

There is only one kind of mushrooms I'd go with without cooking (haven't seen it in stores here though). Everything else - no, thanks!

Would love to help you wild heart but I only know what's in my area and there are some edible ones that I'm not fond of but many others eat. There aren't too many toxic mushrooms here but plenty of toxic toadstools. I only pick what I know and morels are pretty hard to mistake. Those of you who haven't tried them are so missing out. The closest thing that tastes like a morel, and my second favorite thing to eat ever, is fried pumpkin blossoms.

It's early yet but the buyer that is close to use is paying $30/lb and selling for $50. They are some sought after buggers for sure.

I love mushrooms. I don't think we see many morels in our area .. I have to admit that I'm not up on mushroom types in the wild, but it interests me.

I do know which one's I like in the store though!

Off to research if we have any edible shrooms in my area .. and how to identify them.
