Last month, Aunt Suzies hosted a fantastic mushroom party with specialty mushrooms hunted by a local mycophagist. Of course, there were portobellos, porcinis, button tops, oysters, chanterelles, and shiitakes, but the mushroom that was on display as the show stopper was the beautiful and rare morel, which are only in season for a very short time and are extremely elusive. But, this hunter was kind enough to share his bounty with anybody who wished to party, and it was quite a party. Here is a picture of the exquisite morel before they were cooked, taken by Park Sloper, Erika Clarke.
