Our Woods are Good: They’re Full of Morels!

See what I did there? Morels…morals…. Okay, the joke is bad, but the mushrooms are BELICIOUS!

So I was walking along with my net bag, lalala, and I saw this:

And, subsequently, I also found these:

Now, what you must do, children, is cut those babies in half and soak them in salt water. THEN you cook or dehydrate them.

Sometimes, we like them just fried in vegan margarine.

Very delicate and delicious.

But sometimes, we like to dredge them in flour mixed with Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Up Salt.

Mmmm, delicious!

With mashed butternut squash and roasted asparagus sprinkled with Parmesan

Morel season lasts but a very short time. It’s already over for me, alas, but there’s always next year to look forward to.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a French Goose Egg Omelette. The Omelette was French, not the goose. Although I did not, to be honest, speak to the goose personally nor examine her passport.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: What’s the nicest surprise you or one of your characters ever found in the woods?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    With my luck, I’d dig up something noxious and poison us all. But your plating is exquisite!
    I laughed at your commentary about the goose’s nationality. It may have been French, a distant cousin of the Christmas hen.

      Nah, nothing looks like a morel except a morel. Even False Morels don’t look anything like Morels. 🙂
