Found some yesterday, cooked them up and threw it in the garbage. It was like shoe leather. Is there a certain way to cook or did I get a couple of bad ones? I remember finding one last year and it not being so tough. I took the skin off, cut the stem off and the hard stuff around it.

You have to take the small/young/fresh ones. The bigger/older they are - the tougher they are. Also, cut away anything that feels "tough" i.e. around the stem/core. You should be able to tell by how your knife passes through it when slicing.

I had one a couple days ago. It was smaller than my open hand and it was very tender. I sliced it into 1/4 inch strips and fried in butter with salt/pepper. It was pretty good - had the consistency of a portobello. Next time I'd add some garlic/shallot as well to enhance, but it was fine on it's own too.

Wood.....deader the better....so may look like ground sometimes, but just really rotten host then.

Edit ....Juice, those look pretty big. If you don't get them really young....you described them perfect as ....shoe leather. Mid lake rock's pic looks about the right size to pick. If not smaller.

Actually the one pictured tasted great and not leathery at all. Felt like the knife went through cleaner too. I guess I'll keep getting these cause I'm striking out on the morels hard.

I've put on about 30 miles the last three days, all to no avail. Not a single oyster or morel to be seen. I did find one chunk of pheasant back which I brought home for a consolation meal, but that's it.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
