I jest.
Yeah well...I've dumped a few from the solitude of a climate controlled interior while tooling around the farm.

Are these your huckleberry? I haven't messed with them. The whole log was covered.

Yep, they were a bit dry around the edge. Should have picked them but still had too much work to do. I'm thinking about trying to grow some on some inoculated logs. I was just about right on my morel predictions, just started picking them this week.

I always wished to have learned how to pick edible mushrooms. Gathering them here in RI is a big time money maker.

There are things we cook and there are things we fry.

These will be released to the pan shortly...

It really can be. Matsutakes are the real money but even the morells I pick, sometime i sell to a guy at the farmers market who turns around and sells them for $30/lb. Chanterelles and boletes are the sweet spot for weight vs effort vs price.

Mushrooms used to be a big money item when I first got to this area. Now, much of the forest is being reclaimed for growing grain and the forest circust down the road is trashing the experimental forest for the almighty dollar. Big dairy and big developers are buying up the available farms and the shrooms and ginseng that once were abundant has all been over harvested. I will finally get a few hours to go out this weekend , but pickings will be slim...

Ground 38lbs of elk burger today. Had a bunch of roasts from a cow I shot that for some reason turned unbelievably tough. Not sure if it was from the quarters freezing solid before I got them cut up or what. They tasted great but you needed the jaws of life to get them chewed through. Figured while the grinder was dirty I'd grind up 10 pounds of breakfast sausage off the trim from last year's pig. And a big batch of boudin is on the stove waiting to hit the grinder.

Some of the boudin I made with some trimmings from last year's pigs and an elk liver. Would this pass the test Whitebean?

You guys are making me hungry.

I might go fix myself an omelette.

I think a daily visit to this thread might help get my appetite back.

I've been working on traditional Japanese cuisine lately. From dashi stock to miso soup, sunomono, nimono, and most recently started doing my own sushi and sashimi. Every bit as good as I'd get at the nicer sushi restaurants around here, for a tiny fraction of the price.

I wish I liked eggs, but they are just fowl.

I'll save some for if you make it out this way. In all seriousness I have the freshest eggs in five counties probably but I would rather drink the milk from that lady sitting in a bathtub full of cereal than eat a runny yolk. Well almost. Fired hard or scrambled all the way.
