Each spring there is a window of time for finding Morels, and I sure do look forward to it.
 Anyone else a shroomer???

mmmm mmmm morels!

I wish! They don't grow here in the desert. Heck, most shrooms don't. Also, wrong trees here.....

As a kid in southern Indiana, my brother and i went every spring with our Mom and Aunts.  I have been considering it in MA the last couple of years.  Maybe this one if the snow ever goes away.  Love to eat them!

After you got me to make a Morel Mushroom mug I had to research them and go hunting last year.  I had no luck, but it was fun.   Fun enough to try again this year.

I put the Morel Mushroom design on my etsy store and was surprised how many purchased the mug.  Lots of people are into mushrooms.

Wish I knew where to go to hunt them. I'd probably have to go north quite-aways though to find them.

About 15 years ago, i remember an ad to buy Morel seeds, or spores, that you could spread around your woods to start your own patch.

Helene, if you don't find any in the wild, you can buy them.  I seem to remember quite a few for sale on ebay years back.  There are also restaurants that serve them.  I remember that they are really incredible tasting and nothing like other mushrooms you can buy at the grocery store.  I think my Mom used to soak them overnight submerged in water, i think to debug them.  She then dipped them in something like egg whites or some other kind of batter and then rolled them in bread crumbs.  I could eat a couple of pounds right now.  Yummmmmmmy!!!!!!

Ooohhhh Morels  yes

They are part of the routine diet here in northern Michigan...the woods are littered with pickers every May, gotta be quick or you have to go real deep woods to find em before they're picked clean. LOVE the whites...they all taste phenomenal,  but the whites...Oboy

We would go every Memorial Day weekend to Emigrant Springs campground between Pendleton and La Grande in Oregon.
Have not gone the last few years but some friends we introduced to 'shroomin' still go up there.  I loved the hunt, not necessarily eating them.

There aren't any surefire ways to find them, but they LOVE dead wood. Deadfalls of ash, maple and cherry/apple trees. Also think like a spore...they tend to collect in ruts and the like...avoid oaks and pines, they make the soil too acidic. Just a little helpful knowledge, but pagan, they can be unpredictable. I've found them in pine areas, but they were always a little ragged lol

That's where we found them was under and around the pines and firs....
