A really nice jelly fungus.
Mushroom hill and my dad. We must climb!
We made it. Hilltops are the best!!!
Gray fish. Seriously the only one found on the magnificent hilltop. 🤪
Got um home! Fryin’ um up soon!
It’s soon! Sautéed in butter with salt. You might judge me for this, but I am anti salt bath. Tons of people soak their morels in salt water to encourage the bugs to release…or drown and float…I guess? However, I find they change a bit after their soak and I usually don’t deep fry them so I try to keep the extra water to a minimum.
Instead, I use my faucet’s spray attachment to blast out the bugs. Then I dry them with paper towel and let continue to dry for an hour or so on the counter before cooking. Sometimes, I coat them in a little bit of bread crumbs first. I like Progresso Italian style, or Red’s seasoning for fish. NOM NOM
