Carla's notes for this recipe:
I wait for the season each year. Nothing like them. When they're gone they're gone- till the next year. The anticipation is as good as the mushrooms!

I've been drooling over your picture. I love the thrill of the hunt as much as I do the mushrooms.

They are exceptionally early here. We usually don't see them until the 3rd week of April!
