Morel time?
« on: May 05, 2009, 01:50:58 pm »

  Hello,

 It's Morel Mushroom time of the year. I collected about half of a 5 gallon bucket this morning in about 45 minutes. It was getting too light out so I had to quit.... can't give away "my territory".  Razz  

 Seems like a pretty good year for the shrooms, with the cold spring we've had.

 Anyone else collecting?

I don't know where to look, but Morels are pretty much my favorite mushroom in stew or with beef. Happy cooking!

I've always been a fan of the cubensis in a cream of mushroom soup.  Very Happy

 Hey Mac.... I'd send you some, but, you'd probably hate me when you opened the box and saw a pile of mush.... and no "rooms". They don't have a very long shelf life.

 As far as Morel hunting... look for old stands of Elm Trees, especially some that have been felled.  Smile

 Good Luck and happy hunting.

Yes.

I've heard that collecting Black Morels is possibly a no-no here... endangered spieces or something... so I don't collect Morels anymore, even though there's some large patches here locally (acres in size).  I do still collect other varieties here locally... most of which I prefer to Morels anyway.

I recommend Ed Tylutki's book:

http://www.amazon.com/Mushrooms-Pacific-Northwest-Naturalist -Books/dp/0893010626

Nothing like a BBQ steak and a big ole skillet of butter fried mushrooms.

 Hey Mark,

 at about $10 an ounce for Dried Morels... you may want to investigate that Law.  You might be sitting on a gold mine. Smile

 The spores from these mushrooms are in the millions.

I'm sure someone is just waiting for this so here goes....

The Morels are legal; it's those "magic muchrooms" you can't pick.

I thought this thread was going to be about the Morel drivers.
Last year I spent a good couple days pulling the hf's out of Clair UB-2003 speakers, and loading new ones into them in the middle of the night. This was done at the top of a ladder during bad bad bad weather. Oh by the way, it was in a lounge on a cruise ship going around Cape Horn, the water between South America and Antarctica.
It was one of the few times I was glad speakers have magnets, otherwise the screwdrivers and allen wrenches would've kept falling off the ladder. They lasted only a few months from what I hear. Oh well, not my problem anymore.
