Just like Euell Gibbons, that’s us!

We like morels, but none grow on our property.  Lucky us – someone we know has tons of morels and can’t stand them!  So today we found a bag of them on our doorstep.  Wow!  That’s the good "wild" news.  The bad news…. an invasive species that had barely shown its face around here last year is all over the place this year: garlic mustard.  We were out of greens and I picked a bunch of them today to use in dinner. 

So we steamed cauliflower, added pink beans, sauteed the morels and threw in the garlic mustard, and ate it over rice….. well, not bad!

    I’ve never tried Morels OR Garlic Mustard before!

    Weird. I’ve never seen garlic mustard in my yard either, but yesterday I was out pulling tons of it. I thought about eating it but had other plans for dinner so it’s sitting in piles on a bench in the yard. It sure smelled like garlic as I pulled.

    In these parts, garlic mustard is called Jack-by-the-hedge. We picked some to use in salad a couple of weeks ago, along with ramsons (wild garlic) and young beech leaves. Yum! The only fungi we found so far this year were a few St George’s mushrooms on our front lawn.

    You are so lucky to have a neighbor that has them and doesn’t like them!
