Fiddle heads and pan fried brook trout floating in good butter. Mmmm :D

The only ones we eat are the Ostrich fern fiddle head they grow in damp places along the brooks and cedar woods.  ;)

This is a nice red or false morrel mushroom a little bigger than a baseball. One of five we've found since Friday. 



 

Here is how it looked at 6:30 this morning.

Those are inedible unless you have another species you can eat. Anything that has fuzz on the head and stem like that you can eliminate from table fare. Ours come up with brown papery scales that rub off when cleaned. And yes they are a beefier fern as they can grow 6 feet tall when they elongate. When they are fully grown they look like a long Ostrich plume.
Move'n on.

How were those?

 I have always worried about false morels (Gyromitra esculenta). They can contain monomethylhydrazine (rocket fuel ingredient) and eaten in sufficient quantity can cause severe distress and even death. Thorough cooking in an open pan or drying is reported to drive off the toxin. Don't ever eat one raw.

Yes,  it's said that they are poisonous.   But we soak them in salt water and then fry them. Both actions drive off the poison.  Plus it's said that you build up a tolerance.   Never hurt me or mine none.

There are small cavities but are more solid than air.

 

 

This picture is out of focus but gives you the idea.

My sister went by Tractor Supply parking lot and there were two men there saling white mushrooms for $20/half pound. Said they found over 100 pounds of mushrooms along the Missouri River.  They were searching from a boat.  Said they sold out in 1/2 hour.
