      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Went out in the north metro today for a couple of hours and came up with a couple dozen morels (mostly small grays), a pheasant back and a handful of ramps. I've never tried ramps before; any cooking suggestions guys?

That pizza looks awesome!  We ate all the morels so I'll have to get out and find some more for pizza.

I just sautéed the ramps in some butter and olive oil, with a bit of garlic. They were great.  Herky Jr. won't touch spinach or onions, but he just loved the ramps, leaves, bulbs and all.  Go figure!

Del,

 

As long as they are young and tender I've been told they are quite good.  Never found them myself, as in the Brainerd area Elms don't seem to exist...

Pheasant back?  Pretty solid, grows on logs?  I saw a couple of those the other day. 

So they are good to eat? 

Yes, but You gotta get them very young and only eat the edges.  The one in the picture was too old and had the consistency of an old tire. I found a much younger one yesterday and it was quite good. Not morel good, mind you, but pretty tasty.

We are really enjoying the Dryad Saddle this year. It's the first time I've picked them. Thanks to @minky for the tip on the ID and how to pick them. 

We are washing them with the kitchen sprayer in cold water. Then trimming the stem out and slicing them thin. Like so...

Then pan frying in a couple tablespoons of melted butter until golden brown....

finish with a sprinkle of kosher salt and serve like French fries. They are delicious. My non mushroom eating 12yo daughter is cleaning them out every time. I am lucky to even get a few pieces.

Those look great Matt. Maybe I need to start passing all them up?

Someone give me a ruler check by the good size to pick? I keep hearing the big ones and not good?  Big one???
