    I was gonna gloat about our haul last night, but that picture kinda made me shrivel.

    We picked 57 last night, the biggest near 6 inches and the smallest at 2 inches. A darn good haul, will freeze 'em and eat 'em during football season!!!

    Dale, I'm about 2 hours south of Leavenworth, my sister lives there now and YES the shroomies are still there!!

    Billy, why did you dredge up this old thread? Here I was wondering how someone was finding Morels in November.

    Maybe your morels are slipping, eh? :09:
     
  13. are morels extinct since this thread was posted?
    if not it is still good information.

    Since you brought up false morels, I presume you can tell them apart. If not, the false ones have the "cap" kind of loosely fit to the stem like other mushrooms. Real ones have the bottom of the cap growing from the stem. It really isn't too hard if you look carefully.

    Have you ever eaten "Dead man's fingers"? They kind of look like some of the morels, but I never heard of anyone eating them. They are also known as another appendage of said deceased individual, but I can't post that here. It might explain why people don't eat them, however.

    I don't like eating mushrooms so I don't need to worry about eating the wrong ones.

    When stationed in Germany, and living in a small farming village, We used to go out with an old Oma and pick morels. Really big ones, and chanterelles too. Yum !!

    I've never had the time or energy to go looking for them. One year a friend who lived about three miles away found so many he gave me a paper sack with about three or four pounds of them. I made a great batter and deep fried them, about a pound at a time. My wife and kids wouldn't touch them. My dog and I ate all of them. He really loved them.
     
  20. False morels are kind of ugly with a mutant brain-like cap atop the stem with a solid interior. Real morels are conical, more like a pine cone shape, the cap honeycombed around a hollow stalk. First two pictures are of a false morel, second two of the real deal. Here in my area the wonderful winter mushroom season will start as soon as we get some serious rain! Looking forward to my 6th season of mushroom hunting!
