Out doing my early spring morel hunting. Beautiful out had a massive cold front pop in drop some rain and clear up. 1.5 mile hikes once in the AM and once in PM...helps come out of that winter time funk. Along with some gifted ghetto style hash a friend gave me. :hubba: not top quality but it does the trick...free and massive stone. If it works it works LOL
The hikes in the AM I am alone, clears my mind and gets those not so good memories that my dreams tend to dig up. The afternoon my side kick lil pup tags along. Sometimes we talk the whole time others not a word. lil dude n I been through a lot together.
Sorry if I got sappy, I love this time of season.

I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will.

You know what's shocking Ozzy...they go for up to $300 a lb in like NYC and other urban "organic stores" and "Vegan stores" :rolleyes:
1/2 thought about starting a few patches and freeze drying and selling on ebay or something.

The orange ones dissolve your gizzard or liver or something, don't they, Mutt?
All of them have toxins. They have to be soaked in brine (salt and water will work...doesn't have to be brine salt) for several hours, then cooked thoroughly. This removes any bacteria and/or toxins. This applies to ALL of them. The only bad morel is the "false morel" people eat them, but many mycologists advise against it. Not enough Data and what it does to the system..



Canning is not advisable, but if you do then they must be pre-cooked and allowed to breathe during the cooking process, then canned. If straight boil style canned it can be deadly. even if pressure canned you risk poisoning..
You can freeze them or dry them and reconstitute with 1/2 and 1/2 or milk then cook.
fresh only last 2-3 days before they start to turn.

there is plenty of info on google to easily and safely hunt and prepare your own. :)
It's not like other mushrooms with extremely toxic look a likes.

Raw uncooked Morels will make you vomit so much you wish you were dead.

1 single solitary morel so far this season :( The season starts here at the end of February. Sometimes it's not great. Sometimes it's almost too good to be true...

I believe that is only found in the "false morels"....the morchella genus ones are the actual morels and are edible...the false ones contain the toxins MMH.
The only mushrooms I eat are the magical ones...I don't like mushrooms but I tolerate the magic ones....lol

jungle, thats two more than i found. :eek: spring is not gonna cooperate here, and we'll go straight from winter to summer. very cool here still. todays high is 50, and has been hovering there for past two weeks.

getting lots of yard work done though!;) great weather for that. also getting a late start on my veggie garden, but no stress. plenty of time, i just like to push the limits on planting. lol.

soon as we get that steady sun, still plenty of time for the big white morrels. you can spot those from 50 yards away...happy hunting...peace...
