I get them by the bag full when we go to Wisconsin (and wild asparagus) but the only way to get them here is through a high end market or a good produce purveyor (and $20/lb). They are one of my favorites and Iove them in a red wine sauce with a dry aged steak.

Your killing me! I used to hunt them all the time when I lived in IL. When I first moved down here (in mar 98 ) I asked if there were any mushrooms here. You shoulda seen the people look at me like I was a drug runner or something :shock: .

I think I may have seen them at Central Market, but they were something like $30-$40 / lb.

If you find so many you don't know what to do with them.....:wink:

It's a northern Indiana and Michigan thing for me. Every spring around Mid April-May people round here go into the woods hunting for morel mushrooms. No automatic weapons, high powered rifles, or 12 ga. shotguns(unless your turkey hunting and mushroom hunting). Usually just a knife to cut the little suckers off at the root. Hutning for em is just an expression because sometimes the little bastards are real hard to find. For you folks who havn't had morel mushrooms too bad and so sad.

Here's a pic below.

Some real good eating and the best mushroom in my book!

With my poor sense of direction you could trust the location with me. Even if you walked me to the spot and pointed "look there". I would not be able to find it again after I have a beer. Your secret will be safe with me.:wink:

I was shocked a few years ago when I went with my uncle (who has a small dairy farm in central Wisconsin) to his local watering hole for lunch one day. He told me you get a free bowl of mushroom soup with anything you ordered, so I get a burger and to my surprise it is a huge bowl of Morel soup (and by soup I mean just mushrooms cooked out in cream). It was amazing and I told the owner that in NYC I would be charging $25 for the same bowl of soup without the burger. We both laughed and then I ate 2 more bowls of soup. Supply and demand is great, huh?

My folks in Oregon pick them every year and usually bring me a bag of dried slices. Nada last year though - too dry up there or something. :(

I think the only mushrooms that grow down here are the ones that grow in the cow chit.

Why Mr. MacRae, I don't see chemist/pharmacist et.al listed as one of your occupations in your sig block:wink:

I manage to fing about a half a dozen a year on my little corner of paradise. I won't touch the damn things, but the wife'll eat 'em, and I score a few brownie points.

Mushrooms = Fungus
Athletes Foot = Fungus
Do the math.

It's not nice to tease others. When I was a young boy (a few years ago), my aunt & uncle used to hunt morels in Indiana. Great memories, but just that... memories.

hehe This is true! Back home in Oregon folks used to comb the fields at the coast looking for those hallucinatory shrooms, but inevitably a few would pick the wrong one (the two are similar in appearance) and they'd get sick or die of liver trouble. Silly wabbits...

I spent 9 plus years in Indiana. Morels are great! Occasionally we have the right conditions here in Connecticut. In Indiana it was big deal, weight, size listed front page local paper... don't want them... send them my way Pretty Please!

Yours in BBQ,
