Fine, you caught me. I had no idea whatsoever that Morel mushrooms were called "Molly Moochers" (mostly in parts of West Virginia). But after i found out, how could i NOT use that name? It's that time of year again, and everyone who is lucky enough to have their own, top secret place for hunting Morels is at it-and i am lucky enough that my co-worker Brent is one of those people. If you see one of those trucks on the corner with a sign advertising Morels, i urge you to stop and buy some. They are always much more than one would usually pay, but they are worth it!
|a large handful of gifted Morels-thanks, Brent!|
