    Weird flavor. The smell is different than what you think of with mushrooms. Kinda like smelling an orange while eating an apple. You can only try and see. Nothing lost but maybe a new flavor that you like.

    I fried it up and thought it tasted like fried squash which I can take or leave it. There is definitely better mushrooms.

    I was going to go look one last time tomorrow and i see they are still finding them in western PA so there is still a chance. I did find 3 on Sunday and 2 on Monday but i only had about 45 minutes to look. My areas that i normally find them is now posted so i had to expand to new areas this year thanks to some help from members on here i did find over 40 so far which is not alot but they were all nice sized so i cant complain to much. Happy hunting. I am between newport and millerstown so i am not far from you.

    Do you have any room for me and my young sons to hunt archery lol I am kidding. I was thinking of heading to Thompson town but just didnt have time. I scouted the SGL around Thompson town in March and looked promising. I just keep searching around Elms and Ash and thats where i found the majority of mine and a few under an apple tree. I found all of mine in the newport area.

    Hi all! I'm new here, but have been mushroom hunting for a couple years. I'm the chef at Ever Grain Brewing Co in Camp Hill, PA and have a large network of foragers that have been bringing me wonderful PA foraged products for several years now. I decided to try for morels this year, even though I don't have any personal spots.

    I'm wondering this: with all this rain (flooding, etc) here in Central PA, are we definitely done with morels here? I was out today and found nothing. More rain coming in following days....

    morels.jpg Found these in Beaver County on Sunday under a Hawthorne tree. 5 more Wed but a bit older. Hope to find a few more this weekend before they are all gone for another year. Might still be some good ones out there.

    I’m central PA (perry county) and was out today for about 2 hours. Found 20 like this, and brought home 12. The other 6 were to far gone to pick. Mostly around poplars.
