    Co worker has been keeping an eye out for me (thankfully he doesnt like mushrooms) pointed one out to me today in a working peach orchard. Not only abandoned apple orchards and producing apple orchards but now peach trees as well!?!? Went back after work and found 1lb all in nice shape and size. Can you smell what im cooking?

    Just educate yourself on it a little bit is all. If you eat them from the wrong orchard you could slowly be giving your self lead or arsenic poisoning.

    Right on bigfish your probably right but the once a year finds in the orchards i dont think are going to harm me any different than what i eat the rest of the year.

    Nice haul I'm thinking next week I should have a haul like that. Went and tried some more new ground today I keep finding tons of really small greys.

    Yes Sara that is a morel. You can cook them with anything, soups,meat. But my favorite is to saute them in butter n garlic. Yummy. But be careful once you eat them you may be forever hooked on them. Lol

    Geo most of these will end up in my belly. I think morels r to die for n can't stop once I start. Plus I'll give some to my grandfather. Sold a half lb. And I'll dry up alot to get me threw the off season.
