05/04/2011 10:01:38 ‹DIYSeattle› false morels are not hollow in teh stalk I think is the biggest difference
05/04/2011 10:01:46 ‹DIYSeattle› once you get the hang of it they are easy to tell the difference between
05/04/2011 10:01:54 ‹dnenella› oh thats weird
05/04/2011 10:02:02 ‹Mistyvalley› And the bottom of the head is not attached to the stem like a morel is.

05/04/2011 10:03:47 ‹Mistyvalley› And since we had some pop in our yard this week thought it would be a good idea to see if we have any in our woods.
05/04/2011 10:04:12 ‹dnenella› wait i thought diy lived in seattle
05/04/2011 10:04:18 ‹Mistyvalley› MO Conservationist Mag came out last fall with lots of edible fungi that I found later in our woods.

We used to have white morel mushrooms growing near some old apple trees of ours...
but the most exciting ones were the black morels that we hunted in forests. The pleasure of actually discovering these adorably hideous beauties is hard to understand until you've actually tried it yourself. ;)

If you want to hunt them, you might want to do as Mistyvalley did, and have an experienced hunter to give you advice... But as mushrooms go, it's hard to confuse a true morel with the inedible false morel. The true morel is hollow the whole way through...which is why it is often stuffed for an appetizer. The false morel is cottony inside... and the cap is "wrinkled rather than pitted as the true morels are." Also, the false morel's cap is not firmly attached.

  1. I read some folks hatched Trader Jo’s Fertile eggs!
    I saw some fertile brown chicken eggs at Uwajimaya yesterday for $4.99/dz.
    Very tempted.
    All of my last batch of Costco’s Organic eggs were also fertile.
    Some of the Egglands Best also that way. Hmmmm
    Maybe it is a Spring thing??? Fertile eggs everywhere except for in my duck’s nest.
    She went broody over 2 blue easter eggs…hahaha
    But that would be an inexpensive way to hatch some eggs.
