    Found a motherload of chickens just starting out. Also, came across a decent patch of yellowfoots.

    Great pics beat, I would have walked right past those yellow foots not realizing what they were. The few that I found caps seemed more yellow. I think your right on the puffball variety. The spore print on those oyster looking ones was dark brown so I guess there not oysters.

    IMG_6741.JPG IMG_6741.JPG Is it ok to thaw uncooked frozen morels and then dehydrate them. Some of my vacuum sealed morels are getting frost inside the bags. They must have got punctured

    Never tried it, but I wouldn't. The moisture is the killer when freezing mushrooms. I would try to eat some up and the rest I would render down in butter, put them in small bags then vac seal the smaller bags. I make my vac seal bags longer and reseal after I take out smaller bags. Been doing it this way for years and it works great. Never had any luck with just freezing mushrooms fresh.

    IMG_6769.JPG Cool thanks for the advice, I think my wife just jams stuff into the freezer not understanding she's crushing the vacuum sealed treasures inside. Maddening!!!

    Yesterday's finds, were found mostly between/ around rocks.
