Hunting For Mushrooms

You never know where you’ll find morels, these mushrooms were found in a junk yard with few trees and I’ve also found other varieties of edible mushrooms in my yard.

A couple of years ago, buyers were paying big bucks for a pound of morels. Kast year in our area, we had high water, which covered much of the places where morels appear, the high water came across cropland, bringing with it all sorts of chemicals, so the buyers in my area were really picky as they wanted fresh mushrooms, not those that had been submerged in a chemical bath.

As with anything harvested from Mother Nature’s Garden, you want to get them when their fresh, as once they’ve dried up, they get woody and aren’t as good as when they’re young and tender.
