Central Illinois Mushroom Hunting

by J. E. Myers
The morel mushroom is a prized delicacy that grows in the wild in the Central United States. Sadly, while mushroom hunting still takes place in Central Illinois every spring, the increasing development of what was once prime wild mushroom territory is making mushroom hunting more difficult.

I love these things! I miss Grandaddy bringing me bags of them... Some people call them Morel's, but where I come from they're called Dry Land Fish :)

Morels, I freeze mine! Put them in salted water, soak for 1/2 hour, cut in half length ways. Rolled in flour then freeze on cookie sheets first then put in freezer bags. In winter take them out fry in butter without thawing til crispy.

Thrilled to find something to do with the clothespin springs!! I've made about a dozen clothespin snowflakes and had all these little springs left & just couldn't throw them away. Love the simplicity of this.

painted clothespins... think these would be super-cute with magnets on the back for the fridge or an inspiration board.

Using a dremel to carve designs into wooden furniture that is already scuffed or damaged that you find for cheap at thrift or yard sale! Imagine if you burned inside the cuts?! Then finished it?! Could be really cool!!!
