If you’re a long time blog reader you might remember that at Christmas time Kelli and Jason bought a farm and moved. At the time Kelli didn’t know a lot about the place or even what the house looked like. She has since found that she loves the house, loves the heated shop and even loves the wooded land because they have morel mushrooms growing there.
Growing up in southern Minnesota on farm land, I didn’t know a thing about morel mushrooms and honestly up until a few years ago I had never tasted them. Around here…lots of people hunt them.
I’ve always been afraid to even hunt for them as I didn’t know what they looked like.
Well the land that Kelli and Jason bought has them….
Kelli’s mother in law took her out hunting and they were so sweet to share their bounty with us.
I didn’t know a thing about cooking them so we just trusted Kelli….
They were good and I hope to have them again sometime. Honestly, I might even go with her and hunt one day. Tramping around in the woods sounds fun.
Kelli said that most people put a breading on the mushrooms but she hasn’t found a gluten free option that she likes so we had them without.
Any morel mushrooms hunters please share your advice to us newbies! We need cooking and hunting advice.
