        The seasons about to give way here north of the 45th parallel.. Snow melt was slow and the soil temp is just about there for the early black morels popping out of the southern slopes and other areas with plenty of southern exposure.

          We found a few meals worth this afternoon. About 2 quart bags full. Everything is about 2 to 3 weeks late this year from the long winter and cold spring.

            I have these things growing 30 feet outside my back door, under the apple and poplar trees.

            I've never tried them. They look exactly like your photos.

              False morels look very close and one sure way to tell is the stem hits the body of a white or black morel and it is hollow all the way from the bottom of the stem to the top of the inside of the mushroom.

              If the stalk hits the body of the mushroom and closes off there, then it is a false morel. Do not eat false morels. These are called white morels and they have colors that range from gray when young to yellowish brown, to yellowish white. Just make sure that it is hollow from the base of the stem into the body of the shroom.

              I usually cut mine up across the grain about a 1/4 inch thick. Like very small onion rings. Dip them in Drakes batter, ( no egg, just the dry batter), and then fry them in butter at about 325 F. Flip them when side one is golden brown and side two will take about half as long to get to the same color. Golden brown. Delicious. And yes, apple trees, poplars, are a good place to look as are dead or dying elms.

                I had a great morel spot but it burned down and a good Chantelle spot but it got logged off. Last and this year I found porcini mushrooms but picking huckleberries is my big obsession tbh. 2 weeks a year that's all i do so I can have all the huckleberry cobbler i want for the rest of the year.

                    I am trying to make it out foraging this spring, no local experience but I hear chanterelles grow around these parts.
