Yesterday it was blowing a gale most of the day, but today it was milder weather, even though we had several showers roll through and clouds were hanging on the mountaintops.
S. has a friend who knows mushrooms and we went hunting for them.
I found out that it is part of the ‘Shroomers Code’ not to divulge your favorite hunting spots, ergo mums the word. You will have to content yourselves with…. “Somewhere in the woods…” Mr. Mushroom led us to these morels…
They are disguised pretty well too. You need to have an eagle eye to see them…
Shy little things no?
He let me cut two or three of them out of the ground. They seem so … precious.
They are soaking in salt water at the moment and I hear rumors of stuffing them with cream cheese and chives and baking them in the oven. I can hardly imagine what rarified taste THAT will create, but I’m going to find out!
I have wanted to learn how to find wild mushrooms for AGES. I’m so happy to finally get the chance to learn this skill. It HAS been a Domestic Wild day for sure. Gather food. Eat. Life is good.
