morel season has begun

it's that time of year again, morels are starting to pop! it's still a little early so all we made out with was about 3/4 of a pound - just enough to have for dinner for two. it was also jen's first time hunting and let's just say the girl has a gift.
cluster of gray morels about 2 inches each!
it's a little addictive, once she found her first patch, it was hard to pull her out of the woods.
the prize for two hours in the woods, a beautiful bowl of fragrant mushrooms.
so what did we make? i had to work with what we had at the house... cabbage, garlic, shallots, spring vidalia onions, cream and apples. a big bowl of creamy goodness!
