    I have gotten sick a couple times.. It was terrible.. lol
    And I believe it was the yellows, I have never gotten sick from the grays!
    And yes Wine does not mix so well, or any Alcohol.. doesn't mix well with the Toxins.

    From our New York friend: Bigfish1212

    Crisp up some pancetta in a pan then take out the crisp pancetta and set aside. Fry up your morels and some shallots in the pancetta fat until slightly browned then remove and set aside. Meanwhile take some boneless chicken thighs and coat in seasoned flour, after your mushrooms are cooked throw your chicken thighs in the same pan and brown on each side and remove. Then deglaze the pan with some white wine and reduce. And some chicken stock and put everything back in the pan and add your peas let it reduce and let your chicken finish cooking. Finish with some cream at the end.
    Enjoy http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums...9-D546-4CE1-A06E-780B25977722_zps3uqtgknf.jpg
    Bigfish1212, 10,000 taste buds AREN'T wrong. Your recipe was outstanding. I will not share my leftovers. No salt or pepper needed. The Pancetta was a great treat. A bit pricey for a cheapskate like me. I did add chicken broth and then thought it may be too runny, so i added cornstarch with the cream. I saw you served on a pasta side dish, could also use rice I guess. I wasn't having of that filler. What else you gotz...I'm cooking! Sorry to all, as I'm learning how to jumble multiple messages into one.

    i read on Facebook that the season is over, just thought I'd let you guys know.
    People who know, actually posted that this rain probably finished off all old yellows cause they were already past the prime & there's nothing left worth picking.
    So it was a short season this year according to them.

    that is correct .....don't bother. there are no more to be had. It's over. LOL. I became part of a FB group this year. Some pretty wild claims and questions there. "Hey, is this a pheasant back" ? LOL.o_O

    I will be picking for another 2 to 3 weeks.....

    Look for some different FB friends, Boiled Eye. I just got back from a short trip to one of my sweet spots where I picked up 2 pounds of these golds. I'm with freeflow; I'll be picking for another two weeks.

    I found 3 more today while searching a new area. All 3 were found at the bottom of a north facing ridge along a creek bottom under decaying elm trees. Had to cut my hunt short because of my daughter's softball game. Hopefully heading back out tomorrow. Still have yet to hit a big find! Is it just the start of them showing up on the north side of ridges?

    Found 30 big yellows some fresh some a little crumbly yesterday. It was hard picking until I found a spot that wasn't hit hard. Big yellows are usually the ones that get missed that get to grow, and with the rain and cooler temps it is preserving them better.a lot of the ones I found where sitting sideways knocked down by the heavy rain.

    Trooper, been an awesome year. Between you & I we're well over 500 morels for this season, & if you add in BUCKTHORNMAN then we're probably over 515 !! Ha Ha
