Witches' Butter - Tremella Mesenterica
This jelly fungus grows on deciduous wood. It's actually edible and has the consistency of a gummy bear. The field guide suggests dropping them in soup. Dare me to eat one?
Tiny, bright, candy-colored mushrooms. They are very pretty - Look but don't eat! These grow in bunches on decaying wood and twigs.
Morel - Morchella Esculenta
Ah-ha! There's what we're looking for. They have many aliases (dry land fish, merkle) and are so tasty sauteed in butter with a little salt and pepper. Find them growing on the woodland floor in April and early May, when the mornings are still crisp and day-time highs are in the 70's. This is probably our last morel find of the season.
