Morel mushrooms outside of KC

sara722003 Mar 24, 2012 01:46 PM

We went hunting today. Found one large fellow and several too small to pick in clusters, so we'll go back tomorrow B4 the KU game. Are others finding morels? We've had a week of rain and warmer temps than usual, so I'm betting they are out several weeks early. Any favorite morel recipes to share, for those who carry pillowcases and fill them this time of year??

    Where are you going to hunt? I live outside of KC and I really want to try to find some.

        @Irishbeer; please report back if you had any luck with the drying process. Sounds like we went out too early, but last weekend we were in NOLA to cheer on the Jayhawks in their final series. LN: good luck hunting. I hear you need to look on sloped lands, they don't grow so well on flat plains. But we have plenty of sloped limestone country
        side to poke around in!
