MAY AND JUNE 2013: MISSOURI MUSHROOM BONANZA
|Fresh Chicken of the Woods mushrooms harvested here in Missouri, Spring 2013|
|MY FAVORITE: SAUTEED IN BUTTER WITH WILD ONION|
|MY SECOND FAVORITE: ROLLED IN SEASONED FLOWER AND DEEP FRIED|
THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR I'VE FOUND THESE OR EATEN THESE MUSHROOM....I WILL NEVER AGAIN SAY MORELS ARE THE BEST MUSHROOMS IN MISSOURI! These mushrooms tasted just like chicken and grew in plentiful clumps around every corner. I've read on most mushroom sites that the sulfur shelf or chicken-of-the-woods is a Fall mushroom, but I've found three large groupings in various locations here in Southwest Missouri and it appears everyone else walks past them to find Morels...That's okay, keep walking, I'll take the Chickens!
