Largest Morel Discovered

I came home to morel mushrooms in the sink...our son Wes and his friend Tyler had found them after school in the woods. I immediately went out and found the monster shown in the picture. We fried them, but since I'm the only one that likes mushrooms in the family, I had to eat them all! One of the projects we are starting in our woods is to grow several edible and medicinal mushroom species on elm trees. We have ordered the mushroom spawn and the logs are ready for innoculation.

Hi Brent, We're having a mushroom recipe contest and mailing the winner 2 lbs of fresh morels (although they won't be as big as the ones your son found!). If you'd like to submit a recipe, please do so at MarxFoods.com.

Wow, 2lbs. of fresh morels. I think I missed the contest, but will see about next year. Thanks.
