Finally a "Roon" JackPot

Postby KsBow » Sat Apr 27, 2013 6:19 pm

After finally shaking the cold, and after several rains, including about a inch yesterday, it warmed up today. This afternoon, Di, Greyden and myself went to my favorite roon honey hole. In about 35 minutes, I filled the only bag I took. There's still more out there, so I'll take more containers out tomorrow.
I cleaned em up. Dianne cooked up all we could eat, and I had king sized "Messes" in four gallon zip lock bags.
I'll take any ideas anyone has on preserving them. These were all fresh with some day old larger ones which I quartered. Smaller ones just halved em. Wow, they were as good as I remember.
Wish some friends were here to help consume some. :applaud:

Glad you found some Ralph. It hit the eighty's today so I think we will have one last good run before it ends unless this cold front makes them go longer. :applaud:

Ralph I wish I had an answer for preserving that motherlode. I've never found more than I could eat yet. You might be able to blanch them then freeze them. Alex

I dehydrated a batch. Then you can use em in spaghetti sauce or soups, but that's just not the same as a big ole platter full of golden brown, hot off the stove, fried mushrooms. :applaud:

I thought holy cow until I saw this was an old thread. Still a bit early this year, but I did keep my eyes open today.

Leslie, up here we look for them in shelterbelts and in groves of trees that have a lot of cottonwoods. Also along the river banks in the woods. I'll check my GPS for coordinates.
Shoot I'm lucky to be able to fight my way through a computer without any other devices. :applaud:

Leslie I think most of Ralphs trees are laying on their sides six feet tall. Alex
