Default Re: Picking wild mushrooms

Last year I was over talking to the neighbor and spotted the mushrooms where his old wood pile used to be. There were about a dozen small one and we split them. I doubt he ate his. I put the six I had in a marinara. He found these is the same spot. Tonight I did scrambled houby and eggs with an an excellent marble rye bread from WinCo. I used the smaller ones and chopped for the eggs. The others were cut in half, washed, and put in the dehydrator. It's been muggy, rainy, warm, and had thunder and lightening this afternoon which is rare for the NW. I'll check tomorrow to see if more sprouted.

These aren't wild but sure look like it. We got some oyster mushrooms at WinCo and they were excellent. These were sautéed in ghee with S&P added.

Last night pulled a few weeds by my house and found a little morel. My neighbor usually has an area that provides a nice mess and since they are in AZ I went over and there they were. I'll dry some and have some in scrambled eggs for dinner.

This morning I did up a mess of houby sautéed in ghee, added eggs and hog jowl bacon on the side. I baked the bacon and it came out brilliant.

John, is there any left? I'll be right over!

I've been going on Youtube, trying to learn how to identify deciduous trees without leaves, to help in morel-hunting. Yesterday, I took a walk in tree-laden cemetery and it's more difficult than I thought. I wanted to find elms, and I think all I saw were oaks.

Default Re: Picking wild mushrooms

According to a group I joined on FB, they are plentiful around here right now along the dam path amongst the trees, but you must be willing to explore and look for them.
Also being mindful that there are some which look similar. No no no!
So if I have a day where I can go "hunting" I shall.
They're from here to Independence and Jewell following the river and beyond.

I recall my Father being home on leave from the service and knowing exactly where to go to find these in a more southern county.
He also knew where to find asparagus growing wild and pawpaw.

I'll remember what you told me about hollow stems John.
Thanks!

I'll check again tonight after it warms up.

The neighbor got back from AZ yesterday so took him over a bag of dried morels. He said there were a lot more I could have and he wasn't kidding.

The big ones I cleaned, froze and will fry up when I get home from UT. I had some minor oral surgery yesterday and want to heal up so I can enjoy them.
