Woohoo, the rainy spell is at least good for something. Been for a little walk in my mushroom woods today, found masses of tiddly little ones which I've left to mature and then, to my suprise, a bit further on some good patches of mature specimins worth picking.

I found my first of the season today, only a small handful. With two morels, also found today, they were very tasty.

Don't think you'll have much luck trying to cultivate them, I'm afraid - I think the rings are a bit more difficult to establish that just planting (anyhoo, finding them wild is part of the fun!). I've tried throwing a few in the fields behind my house, hoping they'll drop some last spores - but no luck so far.

Wild Mushroom Fettucini
----
Rehydrated some dried morels (bought, I'm afraid) and chopped. Fried off morels with a load of the St George's, when they're nearly done, added wine and bubbled down - then a generous knob of butter and browned slightly. Added soaking water from morels and reduce, then added cream (goes a lovely capucino colour). That's your sauce, mix it with pasta and chop in some parsley. Yum

There are plenty of St George's around and I also found some more morels in woodchip. I have also seen early field mushrooms, fairy ring champignon, chicken of the woods, and three wood blewits!
