After our third spring here in our woods, I finally found them: those elusive Morel mushrooms. I found one by accident and then began hunting in earnest. I harvested about twelve yesterday and plan to hunt again in the coming days. It was so exciting and rewarding when I sauteed some in butter and fried a couple after tossing them in flour. I hope I find many more to experiment with different recipes. I also hope to find and try many Missouri edibles this spring and summer.
