    Morel mushrooms

    [IMG][/IMG]
    This pic is over a month old. Weekend after Easter weekend I believe. Does it make anyone else hungry?

    Life Long Buddy of mine's wife{we were best man in each other's weddings} usually makes up a custom "Hoodie" for the half dozen of us that go....plenty of beer and sometimes you run into a snake or two....this guy, a Hognose, we came across in 2011, and I ended up with a great photo opportunity...

    Ran across a hognose on our lake lots a couple of weeks ago, very aggressive acting snakes. I had to guard him from my 8 year old son though who is even more aggressive.

    Even though I don't like them I don't go killing them. The do eat mice and shrews. Of course they get some toads too .
    I didn't go out mushrooming. I did find 2 large white ones but the slugs found them first. Then I forgot them, at the neighbors.

    What makes these mushrooms so tasty/pricey? I am guessing we don't have them here in the south or I would have heard of them.

    There should be morels in South Carolina. Stands of timber in river bottoms are the biggest producing areas here. There are good morel spots in the hills though to. As to the taste they're really good, better than a good supermarket mushroom like a portabella. I wouldn't pay $40 a lb., but there can be a lot of walking in finding a pound.

    Until my Father's last year with us, he was an avid Morel hunter. He took the best locations to find them to his grave. ( a couple of times, he came back from his morning search with a plastic shopping bag full ) He used to tell me that they were pricey, mainly due to the fact that they are very difficult to cultivate. Kind of like Truffles. Don't know if this is factual or not, but seems plausible.
