We have morels!
My husband discovered them as he was cutting the grass,
popping up at the base of our old ash tree.
Just a few feet away in an undisturbed wooded area
I found more. That calls for a hunt.
They like to grow near certain trees, especially where
there is dead and decayed wood- perfect conditions here.
Both my mother and neighbor advised me to soak them first,
slice, batter and fry them- in butter according to my mom .
When I was young I wasn't much of a mushroom fan
except when mom cooked these! They are so different!
You can read more about them HERE.
If anyone has other recipe ideas, please let me know.
