Episode 69: Mountain Morels

As a Minnesotan, Morels are prized.  Having been defeated in my home state and Iowa, left with only 1 mushroom to share between many, Washington was a chance for revenge.  We went out with author and forager Langdon Cook — into the Eastern Cascades, many miles up the mountains and to a “burn zone.”  These much coveted spots are the birthing place of mountains of morels.  Lucky enough to have a lead, we learned the ins and outs of this western version of a Minnesota treasure.

    Glad you remembered your knife this year. I LOVE morels. Just ate the last of mine (frozen) from last year. But fresh it best. Time to hunt!
