It's what's for dinner! :food:
Not abundant by any means, but well worth the effort if you are willing to hunt them. The last 10 days of rain has them popping. Wife and I collected about two 5 gallon buckets yesterday afternoon and this morning. We have no honey holes, so we just started looking in likely areas under timber with lots of needles, moss, and rotting stumps and blowdown. They are gems in the rough.
After we boiled off the water we sauteed with butter, dry sherry, fresh garlic, and sweet onions. To die for...
We have found that they do not lose their flavor or edibility if you cook them and then freeze them for future use.
