Just when the lilacs are blooming, mushrooms start to come out. We found these beauties (well, they WERE beauties- Bethany didn't know you're supposed to put them in water in the fridge...*sniff) under an old apple tree.
Morels are supposed to pop up by dead trees, burned trees, and elm trees, but as I said before, these were found under a very alive apple tree.
I also found one by happenstance on a bike ride one day. While I am not a big fan of mushrooms, Hubs and his family like them cut in half, dipped in flour and then fried in butter. Butter is good. :)
