I've never seen anyone not smile after biting into a beer battered mushroom (especially good with a horseradish dip at hand). I've seen many a mushroom hater fall in love with Morels. They'll pass on a Potabella though. It's actually a good business to get into.


Thats the word on the street. I live in Oklahoma so there's not really a market. Mrs. Catfishjoe hates mushrooms but love morels????? We eat ours without dipping sauce. Care to share a horseradish recipe? Hmmmm??


Fresh ground horseradish and some mayo. Add the HR to taste. Be aware that one guy I knew who ate a raw horseradish compared it to eating a tablespoon of tear gas.
But that's another story.


I drink wasabi Martinis. That's a manly drink right....minus the umbrella. I should be good. Thanks!!!

That's pretty hardcore. I lasted about three minutes in a phonebooth at the Horseradish festival in Oregon. And I do love me my spices! I don't think I had a cold for a couple of years after that episode.

Hahaha!!! I have terrible allergies and the only I can smell is when I eat wasabi or horseradish. Mrs. Catfishjoe could sh** her pants and I couldn't smell it

And I'm watching the watchers. Go have a Wasabi martini topped off with a Jalapeno. But don't kiss the Mrs. goodnight as she might take offense. The couch can be hard on the old back.

I absolutely LOVE mushrooms. I'm blessed with being on the West Coast which means occasional road trips from Cali to Oregon to Washington. Mushroom heaven. I haven't had morels yet! O_o However I have had Golden Chanterelles and Shaggy Mane. Both very delicious. Look forward to trying a morel. Actually there were some black morels growing on my property last year but I identified them too late.

Since some of you are talking about spicy. Just made some Habanero Poppers! Wish me luck.

Love love love morels !!

They grow like crazy where I live.


My favourite way of cooking them up:

Sauteed in butter with garlic. At the last few minutes mix in a few large heaping spoonfuls of sour cream, stir until sauce is bubbling, creamy, and heated through.


I like to then spoon the saucy morels on top of a bbq'd steak... OMG it's to die for, tastebud heaven !

My fine State of Hellinois has proposed that we get a mushroom hunting license.

I'm serious!

I live in SE PA, not far from "the mushroom capital of the world", Kennett Square. Being an amateur mycologist (NEVER eat anything you have the SLIGHTEST doubt about, know what you're doing and you can always learn more). I have found few morels.

But I have found a sweet honey hole of hen-of-the-woods, trumpets, and other miscellaneous gems...there are TONS of agarics (highly poisonous), toadstools, and fairy rings of beautiful but deadly fungi. I know there are morels around. I've seen handwritten signs advertising them for sale. I just need to explore more...

Happy (and safe) Hunting.

I'll post more when I'm on my pc. Too much typing for my phone.

Hellinois has been doing bat snip crazy stuff lately.

For every edible mushroom there is a Toxic twin..... I would stay well away from Mushrooms unless you are with an expert.

Say's the Guy who once ate 5 Fly agaric Mushrooms with some sausages...

Almost true, but true enough to be a good idea to take heed. The trick is to learn the twin and what makes it different from the edible one. And if you have a gut feeling that something is wrong with them, don't eat them. Of course the gut feeling needs to come before you eat them, not after.

Some mushrooms are so toxic that even just trying a tiny bit first and seeing what happens is enough to kill you... really this happens.

Not a bad idea as long as it is coupled with a class on how to tell the difference between the edible ones and their diabolical lookalikes. The problem is that the class would cover all the edible mushrooms, even the ones that you are not familiar with and would encourage you to go out and try these, which isn't a good idea if you are not completely familiar with them.

At least then he'll have some sort of morels... mwahahahahaa!

My wife and I love Morel mushrooms. At my local grocer, they are $22 an ounce. It's a good thing I know a good place to collect them.

Have you ever heard about cultivating them? I've often thought of trying, in preparation for when I can no longer make the hike to pick them from my spot.


One good way to forage them closer to home is, when you find some to take home, catch the water you use to rinse them and dump it under an appropriate tree (birch, etch). You're literally seeding the area with spores from the rinse water.

A quick way that I cook them is dipped in beaten egg then rolled in Panko bread crumbs, sauted in oil. I have oodles of recipes for morels and they're all yummy. Even my picky-eater teenager goes back for 2nd and third helpings.
