My fellow SE Michigan food freaks...Ramps Seaon is coming!

  • 8

Anyone want to go out with me? I know where they are in great numbers. Would not mind having a date in mid May that we can get together to go gather Ramps, drink some beer, cook up some beast and end up having a terrible hangover the next day. This would be located just a hair east of Lansing not to far from I-96.

  1. We will be digging ours in the Pigeon River area when we get so frustrated not finding morels. Unless there is rain, there won't be a one!

      Found about 5 pounds of Morels last year in my mom and dads back year. Every year we spread more spores. I am not to concerned about rain....I bet we do fine.

    2. Boy, that sounds fun! Dumb question, though---is the point to enjoy the ramps, or to discover the adjacent morels? If morels are the point, are you sure you can steer people away from a poisonous look-alike? (not to be a wussie about it, but I got a lot of bills still to pay before I die.)

        Ramps and Morels may not be growing during the same time. This would mainly be a Ramp trip...any morels found would be just a extra. I will say i have never found a morel in the same direct area as the ramps. You have to go a full 1/2 mile away for the morels. :)

        I can easily tell the three kinds of morels I usually find from the bad boys (False morels). False Morels actually would never get you that sick anyways. I would never serve you anything I would not eat myself.

        I may love spicy food but I am not much for poison!

          Hey, I had to ask the question. :-)
          I'd sure like to contribute to and participate in this foray, if it happens and there's room for one more. Cheers

            We have found white morels UNDER ramp leaves in the Pigeon.

              Nice...I wish I could find both in one area. Maybe one day I will get lucky.

        2. I am gonna take this off board as I do not want to violate Chow.com chowdown rules....
