These wild mushrooms are amazing. Its become hard to find them in our area where they used to grow wild almost everywhere. Dad and Aunt Ina would bring home big bags of them in the spring and we would feast on them.

Morels are so rich and buttery. They truly are heavenly and there is nothing else like them.
