Morel Magic

My husband and I had our best morel mushroom hunting expedition ever. We rose early and left the house by 7:00 A.M. in dense fog with the temperature hovering around 50F. We drove to our favorite area and look what we found!

These guys were absolutely fresh with no insect damage whatsoever.

Here they are sorted and lined up on the kitchen counter. The top row are the “grays” and the bottom, the “yellows”

    You certainly brought back childhood memories for me. I grew up in Michigan and at one time we had a farm out in the country. We would go morel hunting down the road. Dad liked them best just sauteed in butter and made into a sandwich!
