The Early Arrivals - The Mushrooms are Up

Today at lunch there were a bunch of Shaggy Mane Mushrooms up - the first of the season!

There has been alot of rain lately, but this is the earliest we've ever found them.

Dozens and dozens of them were out. Very few were mature and melting - most were ready for picking.

These have a nice "mushroom" taste, and are best in soups or eggs, because they are rather gooey if you cook them too long.

Time to get into the hills to check on the Chantrelles...
