Growing up in CA I have always been afraid of mushrooms, as I was taught to be. One day in El Dorado County I noticed a garden of mushrooms under an oleander bush. My husband being a Hoosier recognized the mushrooms as morels. He had me sauté a skillet full and I was so against doing this - I thought they would be poison, but he ate the skillet full and lived!

How about the Morel mushroom which looks like a brain on a short stem?? I was told that they only grow from the roots of a dying apple tree. I had 3 old apple trees die on my property, and Morels were growing from all of them...ate them sauteed, accompanied by a glass of champagne. Delicious.

While not easy to find, morels generally grow abundantly in Oklahoma, depending upon rainfall amounts, but we find them mainly around dead elm trees--occasionally oak. They usually sell for between $25-40 a pound, if you can find someone who wants to sell them instead of eating them.

I foraged out a 5 pound, 12 inch long, lions mane or bearded tooth fungii (#2 above) nestled inside a large fallen, water oak tree trunk here in north Louisiana last Sprung. I took it back to the house and after cleaning and slicing thin (looks like chicken), marinated, cooked, and ate some from a skillet, freezing the rest for later. Fairly tasteless but palatable fungii which takes any marinade well. It was awesome with pulled pork. My favorite here though is the meadow mushrooms, which fairly well resemble and smell like a scaled down version of portabellos. It too is awesome, last marinaded in teriyaki sauce and sesame seed oil, which I grilled with chicken filets. My policy is try to learn edible fungii that either have no lookalikes or their lookalikes are edible also. Can't go wrong this way.
