I did some research and scoured the forums for information before choosing a spot for my first morel foraging adventure this past Wednesday, and I lucked out! We came back with about a pound of fresh morels, and Nik (my housemate and incredible chef...) cooked me the most insanely delicious morel mushroom risotto for my birthday today! The meal was just out of this world. First time finding them, and first time eating them... and all around just the best experience. Thanks to everyone for posting your photos - it helped a lot!

Thanks hoblershang, and I'm envious of all the fiddleheads! What a haul!
ADK: Thanks! Even so, finding them for the first time is exciting! Maybe they're really too old, but I read on the forums here that even if you find them partially dried out you can sun dry them further so they can be preserved and eaten later

New to Erie Co and to morel hunting. I've spent hours researching and love this forum! Great community. Would love to surprise my husband with some legit advice on where to head for our next hike where we could possibly spot something. Salamanca seems to be the closest hot spot near Buffalo. Do y'all think I'm right with that? Thanks! I'm spending a lot of time now just learning to identify elm, etc.

Now is the time to be out there. Morels are getting big and are much easier to spot, not easy, easier. Good luck and enjoy the hunt.

Good to know for next time, these were falling apart in my hands but I did find a few that were just poking through so I’ll have them within the next few days.
