My fridge is bursting with ‘shrooms!  They’re being crushed beneath each others’ weight, forcing the half-and-half to sweat and fade on the counter, keeping me up late at night, challenging my imagination and culinary stamina.

What to do with a basketfull of Black Trumpets?

…or a bag’s worth of Eastern chanterelles?

Perhaps a breakfast omelet of local duck eggs, chanterelles, caramelized onions and cheddar:

…and a dinner of black trumpets and chants with garlic, white wine, basil and a crumble of Gorgonzola, served over fresh lobster raviolis:

… prime examples of my Hundred Yard Diet, being largely from my garden and the nearby woods.

If anyone has a pickling recipe for a shopping bag’s worth of Oyster mushrooms, I’d be more than happy to entertain it, as my half-and-half needs a place to stay…

Yes, we do. Flatlanders had better beware, but us hill-folk generally do fine.

Of course, you’ll want to multiply this formula by at least 3 times if you indeed have a grocery bag full!

Yum! 🙂

Vikki, thanks, I’m gonna try that one!

…And Cuz, the lobsters in these parts inhabit our trees, so perhaps a hard-hat would be more appropriate?
