Do any of you love to hunt and eat wild mushrooms? I just love them! I soak them in salt water for a few hours or overnight, then dip them in egg and flour and fry them golden brown...the flavor is wonderful! This is the time of year for them and last weekend we went looking...we found a few, but most of them are not up yet...I figure if we have a few more warm days they will be popping up all over...last year we got 3 five-gallon buckets full. I gave alot of them away, and I froze up a bunch of them...you have to dip them in the egg/flour and partially cook them, but not all the way..just enought to brown them, then freeze them first on cookie sheets lined with wax paper...so they don't stick together, then peel them off the sheets and throw them in freezer baggies. When you are ready to eat them, just take them out frozen and either finish cooking them in oil, or I just microwave them, although they aren't quite as crisp that way. My stepson's mother and stepfather found so many of them last year that they took them to a restaurant in Des Moines and made almost $1,000 for them! I just love the taste of them!
