a week ago I bought some from a guy alongside the road, 50 a pound,

today I walk out of the camper and bam!

6 feet out from it

of course seeing this from the camper window makes the fall look better

Not sure why but I only found 3 this year on my families property this season. Usually I can get quite a few.

Those things cost $50/lb? No wonder the old man kept coming onto my property collecting them. Damn.

Are you sure you didn’t just eat a few hallucinogenic mushrooms and were imagining that you weren’t seeing anymore??

short season, I’d grab at least ½ # and fry them up while you can

The car IMO is a sign he’s retired and well off enough to hunt morels, buy some and thank him!

Last time he had chanterelle mushrooms and some white truffles, Crazy :money_mouth_face::money_mouth_face::money_mouth_face: but well worth the treat! Fried up in bacon drippings :+1::+1:

I’ve sit wild mushrooms that are amazing. I’ve had other times too that weren’t enjoyable at all but I still do it

Just make sure they are true morels. Those false morels look similar and are toxic.

And for goodness sake, don’t use butter flavored crisco! Use ghee and you will never use butter flavored crisco again.

falsies I know but ghee?

Clarified Butter - for cooking with real butter that won’t burn because the milk solids are removed. It’s delicious and soooo much better than crisco. And better for you also. It’s not trans fat like crisco is.

Thanks I’ll see if I can find it, just now looked and was surprised crisco isn’t even lard, which I thought it was
