If these grow all over the states then maybe someone should give some to Obama...

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

Here in Iowa they are huge. People love to eat them. I do not care for them myself and it may be because I have yet to have a good recipe with them. I do hunt the heck out of them and sell them per pound though and make some decent cash

Here in Iowa if you sell in Des Moines they can go minimum 15 bucks a pound. I have seen upwards to 50 a pound from restaurant owners.

And depending on the size...... what? 15-20 mushrooms equal a pound?

ahhh, bacon grease, my own mother use to keep a jar of bacon drippings in the fridge just for flavoring...now, I get to have a slice of bacon only when we go out for breakfast...yup...the good ole days. now, it's those fake eggs, a scoop of fat free cottage cheese, and a cup of fruit, for breakfast....it's a b*tch trying to stay healthy

I have found a few big ones. I usually slice them in half long ways before cooking.

They really are little beauties. I have a bunch that come up in a front garden out of the base of birches every year. I honestly don't even pick those they are so pretty in spring when little else is growing. It's working in my favor though, the little patch gets bigger every year.

Star and flag for a great post Catfishjoe! Come spring I'll be combing the ridges here in Pa. to find these free treats, maybe mix them in with my homemade spaghetti sauce.

You can also freeze them. Just cut them long ways roll them in whatever dry ingredient you use(flour, panko...whichever), then put them on a cookie sheet and freeze overnight. Then pop them in a ziploc bag and your good to go!!

If you guys are anywhere near Iowa I would be happy to airlock some bags full of them and send them to you. Usually I have more than I can sell and more than my family will eat.
