Mushroom Hunting Season is Here
They say April showers brings May flowers. In these parts, April showers, which we have had way too many of, are now bringing May mushrooms. With the warm sunny weather of the past few days the mushroom hunters have been out in full swing. Being the city boy that I am I have never gone mushroom hunting. I was asked to go a few years ago, but I would have had to purchase a florescent green or orange vest which would have cost me more than just buying mushrooms at the store. I found out later, the vests were not needed (told you I was a city boy).
Seriously, it is a passion with many in this area to go out and “hunt” for mushrooms. They are apparently very good. I tried them years ago but they were not cleaned very well. They went from being a delicacy to off limits when I found a couple of ants in them on my plate. I haven’t had one since. Everyone raves about them though but all I can think about is the people on “Survivor” downing some beetles for breakfast. No thanks!
For you who do enjoy the “hunt” good luck and happy eating.
