this may look like brain coral, but sauteed in butter

these foraged morel mushrooms taste like
the sweet, smoky pub fare of heaven.

thank you, joanna.

My sister and her husband are big mushroom "hunters!" She'd go wild over this photo!

Very impressive find. I have often wondered the same as 'greensborodailyphoto' too. MB

JM said...

I have never seen these before and I would love to try them!

Tracy said...

My husband loves those things. He can remember when as a child he and his Mom used to go out looking for them and she would bring them home and cook them up.

It is much more appetizing to compare its appearance to brain coral than to what brain coral looks like. These mushrooms are extraordinary.

Well, I'll take your word for it!

Re your question on Ocala DP: The building used to be a bank, I believe, but I don't know what it's used for at the moment. I think a variety of businesses have set up shop there, but none have lasted.

Halcyon said...

I had no idea what these were, but they sure look tasty!

Magpie said...

Isn't it amazing the things that we eat...mmm good.

Sharon said...

These are the wonderful mushrooms I remember from my youth when living in Illinois!

valeria said...

Wow, up till now I had seen them only on books. Are they good?

VP said...

Are these things from another planet? At first I thought of natural sponges with a handle, but I don't think they're edible...

brattcat said...

Oh, Valeria, 'good' doesn't even begin to describe them.

Steffe said...

I will have to take your word for it.

Amin said...

I have never eaten a morel. I have seen photos and read that they are the holy grail for mushroom hunters. I guess they are on my bucket list.

Hilda said...

I've never seen or heard of this mushroom before — I would love to try it! I love all the mushrooms I've tasted so far.

Sharon Creech said...

I've walked thru many a wood, but, as Amin says,' I have not seen before so like mushrooms.' And maybe I am alone in thinking they look . . .icky. I will take your trusty word for it that they are tasty!

Carraol said...

Are they Magic Mushrooms?

Malyss said...

We eat them with cream and parsley..how delicious!

Kate said...
