These superb edibles are some of the first mushrooms to fruit in the early spring. They are often found growing near Tulip Poplar, Apple, and dead or dying Ash and Elm. Morels are some of the most highly sought-after mushrooms, as well as the most expensive! They have a very distinct flavor that marries really well with cream, but they can also be used like any other mushroom.
Fiddleheads or Ostrich Fern
Fiddleheads are the young fronds of the Ostrich Fern (as well as several other edible varieties). They exhibit a wonderful vegetable flavor, similar to snap peas. Care should be taken to verify the species, as some ferns are poisonous. Look for specimens that have a brown papery sheath, rather than white fuzz.
