Mmmmm! We used to find them in cedar groves when I was a boy in NW Montana. I can still smell them! Great shot, Betty!

WAY! Buyers come from all over the world to scout each year's previous wildfire burn, locals go out and pick by the bushel. You can make pretty good wages for about a week (and then, sadly, all the morels disappear) if you are so inclined.

Buyers set up rows and rows of racks and dry them in the sun and then vacuum-bag them, and ship all over the planet.

I just pick for myself, and give away as gifts, if I'm lucky enough to get to a good burn area. I LOVE morels, the finest detritivore on the planet!

Okay, that's it! I'm coming right over!

Ours won't be blooming until last week in June, can't wait! They really flourish in year-old wildfire burns, so we always have good places to pick.
