    found these where I cut down a black locust tree last year. Went out today and searched the entire patch of woods and found no more. Seems like I only get one batch a year but never in the same places.

    Checked yesterday in southwest Ohio, found nothing. If they don't come soon you won't be able to see them for the undergrowth.

    The whites or yellows are found early in Indiana, Ohio, Mich. I have found yellows as big as a football. Best way t o eat them is flour them up ( rice flour) fry them in butter. I have been finding and eating them since 1955

    Anyone know where they can be purchased that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? Just don't have them here in Dallas and would love to get a mess or 2. Thanks.

    Last time I saw fresh one's for sale they were priced and selling well at $50./lb. I've seen them go to high end chefs for twice that.

    Years ago, in southeast Kansas, I had Morels that grew in my yard. I asked a neighbor why they thought the mushrooms grew there, and he looked at me funny and said, "they'll grow wherever you throw away the water you wash them in. The folks that used to live in your house always threw their water over there." I tried it, and it seemed to work. I'd pick a batch and wash them in clean water, remove the mushrooms, and go throw out the wash water in the shady part of my yard. Next year, there would be mushrooms growing there. I guess the theory is that the spores get washed off in the water. With all the chlorine and things in the water today I don't know if it would work, but it seemed to back then.

    Shoot well and often,

    Mark.

    Mom use to cut them in half length ways,dip them in whipped eggs roll in crushed cracker crumbs and fry in butter. Bill

    P.S. Do not ask me if they were good! I do not like to be in the same room as a mushroom!
