My sister has harvested delicious mushrooms in New Mexico and our neighbors in Asheville forage for wild mushrooms, too, with morels being a delicacy, of course

So it was remarkable to find (my gardening companion discovered them) these giant “yellow” morels. It’s apparently late in the season, even for this far north.

The key fob is there for scale.

The second two harvested.

 They were delicious, even just cooked in a bit of olive oil without salt or pepper.  I wanted to see what they tasted like “plain.”

There’s lots of interesting information about morels; I found it fascinating that yellow and black morels both include several species, and some are basically a “species complex.”
