Morel

I always photograph the first one of the year. [Today was also marked by the first appearance of the wild asparagus:biggrin: :biggrin: .]

Thanks for showing me what they look like Bob. I've recently moved just south of you to Chillicothe and several folks at the plant where I work have talked about "Mushroom Hunting" and tried to describe it to me. I'll take this shot to work to confirm this is what they're talking about.

They're definitely not the prettiest thing you'll find in the woods, but once you try them, you'll be hooked. BTW: There are no poisonous mushrooms that look like this.
 
Nice shot, Bob! I too am a Morel lover, though I've never been hunting for them myself.

How do you prepare them? And how does wild asparagus compare to commercially grown? Thanks!:smile:

Thanks Leigh. I like them gently sauteed in butter, but people use them almost any way that commercially grown mushrooms are used. They are more delicate than most other mushrooms. As for the asparagus, I can't tell the difference. I tried several times to grow asparagus, but it never prospered. Then, about 20 years ago, we found some growing in a couple of places in one of our pastures -- I'm careful to not give it any care lest it would fall victum to my farming skills:biggrin: .
