Found 10 mostly blacks in Calvert County yesterday. Just got a light rain here over night which should make it easier to spot them.
Hey guys, found these growing around a stump by my house today - can anyone help me confirm there are Morels?
Yes sir they are morels. Nice finds congrats
Thanks...I am a little nervous about it but do you think they are safe to eat ?
Look fine to me! Look up some recipes.
I agree with Chuck684 I would eat them.
Spent yesterday morning mulching a flower bed and found two of these little guys popping (in Anne Arundel)
Yes they are 100% morels — Morchella esculenta. Since they’re around a stump and luckily in your yard, you will know if Root Out or any kind of chemical was used to help along the decomp of that stump...? So long as your answer to that is no, they are completely fine to prepare and eat. You'll find yourself counting down the days until spring makes them pop again next year! Unless you catch the bug of course, than all bets are off.
Great find by the way. What area are you in if ya don’t mind me asking? Those are considered yellow morels, which are the largest albeit the last variety of morels to fruit here in our part of the country. Your photos are actually the first I’ve seen so far this year with yellows — and nice sized ones at that!
Not all festivals are canceled, we attended Rampapalooza yesterday ;-)
Going to pickle a few jars, compound butter, make some pesto/chimichurri. Any other recommendations out there?
So I guess eating ramps naturally helps with social distancing........love me some ramp pesto ...
It won’t be long now. Enjoy.
We dry the leaves & Crush them up for seasoning pizza, ect.
then crush em up
How much studying have you done? Doesn't sound like much! Yes! Morels are safe to eat, and they're the easiest beginner mushroom to get started with. From there you can branch out and hunt other mushrooms, but you need to educate yourself. After that you will know that when you find a new kind of mushroom, and all the indicators (appearance, spore print) are positive, you only eat a tiny amount the first time. Then you sit back and wait for a reaction. This is how it goes when eating wild anything.
Just like my first meal of wild venison every year. It will give me the craps every time! I don't know why. I guess it's just the change from domestically raised meat to wild meat.
Thanks for the tips guys, time to break out the dehydrator.
Found 4 small grays and a half free, I think, today. 4 grays just came out, the half free looks like it was out for a little while and dried out on the edges. I think it’s just starting here. 1100’ southeast slope, mostly hickory but mixed with poplar, locust and oak.
Greenstone hopefully they are getting going in your area. I actually found a couple small grays mixed in with a couple black ones today up high and some small white ones starting down in lowland myself. That one you found is definitely a half-free. Nice pics as well keep em coming. Congrats!
A few yesterday in Carroll county under sycamores. Small and first ones to pop in this patch.
Hi all I’m a complete newb and have some questions.
Sunday I found my first ones in MD which was only two and yesterday I found probably 50 some mostly small over half the black ones. I found these in PG under dead cherry tree mostly and in two different wood lots.
From what I have read the black ones tend to be earlier then the yellow. Do they continue to come up in the same spot as far as yellows after the blacks or different areas. I found most on tops and south slopes a ways up from the creek.
As far as what I read on this thread looks like things are just starting ?
