There's Fungus Among Us!

One of the consolations of my semi-monastic existence here in Outer Podunk is being able to step out the back door in the morning and find tasty $40-a-pound gourmet mushrooms. This little morel was, believe it or not, growing in the backup of my driveway...along with about a dozen others. Now you'll have to excuse me while I saute my 'shrooms in a some butter and have myself, as the shampoo commercial says, a totally organic experience...

Wow, I'm impressed! And that you even know what's poisonous and what's not is amazing, too. I would never even attempt it, city gal that I am. I hope they were tasty!

The trick is getting the grit out of them. Chewing sand can spoil even the rare treat of sauteed morels.;-)
