Wild morel mushrooms grow on our land. They usually pop up in April, but the season is a little late this year with the cold spring.
Our friends Karla and Larry showed us which ones to pick so we don’t poison ourselves. Actually morels are quite distinctive, so they are easy to identify.
They are expensive in the stores so we feel very fortunate to have some here. Karla and Larry picked over 800 of them here last spring. They have great flavor and make wonderful soup. It is kind of fun to forage for our own wild food!
