How many of you like to look for mushrooms during this time of year? They are selling for $35 a pound at a local store! Yep, you read that correctly, $35 lb!
We went out yesterday after several days of a nice steady rain and found about 2 pounds of mushrooms! We were so happy because the woods we look in (which are ours) have been slowly producing less and less. We know there are trespassers back there, we've seen their cars parked on side of road sometimes when we're coming home. If we "catch" them, we let them know they are trespassing and to please leave, especially when we love mushrooms and these are our woods and that is what we enjoy doing for only one week out of every year. So, here I sit with a plate of fabulous big yellows (morels) and slices of tomato, the smell makes me want to go find more, the weather is beautiful and I'm a happy girl. Where do you live and do you enjoy this activity? Do you have a special recipe for these types of mushrooms?
