Found one huge morel, Sussex NJ

May 18 2008, 7:34 AM 

I found one huge morel (8") under a dying ash here in Green Township, Sussex County. I searched my property 3 days ago and found none, I was on vacation the last two weeks and thought I completely missed them. I'm going out to look for more today.

How far from Mercer County ( Princeton area) are you? If not far, scope out wooded area's, parks, etc. might have some luck. Check out Morelmania.com and keep an eye on area to see if anyone is finding there yet. Good Luck.

As soon as I do some serious picking ( and findings) i will post with the pictures. Still very slow coming up this year. Hope it gets better, weather is looking very promissing and temps are staying in a steady 70. I will stay tuned. good luck to all and happy spring!

If any one is interested in seeing email me. I would also like help on identifying a tree where i picked 11 of the morels by. Also i have a great recipe for stuffed morels if any one is interested in.

Yes, we are still here. NJ's realestate market isn't doing what we need. We're still looking to head south as soon as possible. So, we are picking morels 3 times a week in NJ instead and loving every minute! What a great long spring. If this weather continues, we might go into June this year! I seriously need to replenish my dried supply after a winter of sauce-making! Will be heading up to Lake Wallenpaupack area next week to see what's up along the way in PA. Will report back.

Went out over the weekend and picked so many blond morels and so many oyster mushrooms, both just came up and are so nice and bug free. My refridge has nothing but mushrooms in it. My family is starting to freak out because I care more about picking mushrooms. I just love this time of year, Dont you? I cooked the oyster mushrooms with peppers and onions and served on sausage sandwiches, delious. I have some good recipes for morels too if any one is interested and have lots of pictures from this year if any one is interested. email me and i will send them

Morels & Oysters

May 14 2008, 3:20 PM 

Hey Shelley - Went out again this AM and came home with two bags full of big yellows once again. Also came back with, as you said, beautiful Oysters. I don't remember them being so nice and creamy as they are this year. It's getting close to Chanterelle and Bolette time, so I'm keeping my eyes wide open for signs while I'm out. Dry some of those 'shrooms and use them all winter. Try my sauce recipe on the recipe page. Anyone who has ever had it raves about it and begs for more! I'll let you know when the Chanterelles are ready. He hunt them up by Crater Lake area. It is also a good area for Hen-of-the-Woods & Black Trumpets.

hey, for Princeton area.
I know a group that went out on May 4th for Morels in your area and did well. From what i understand they went out during the peak of the season in your area. So it might be at an end there. My area is a little behind you and we are just peaking now. I belong to the NJ mycology group and they are great if your hobby is Mushroom picking. Its worth the few dollars to join. He can stay on top of mushroom picking and informed on all that NJ brings where Mushrooms are concerned. They have great forays and all sorts of events for us mushroom pickers. Oh well if interested log onto there site. NJMYCO.org
good luck.

nj morels

hello all,
I have never found a chanterelle in NJ. I do know the time for chanterelles ( orange one) here is July because I know some shroomers that pick them in July and always give me some ( I give them morels, they give me chanterelles) its kinda of funny though because niether of us will give up our spots so we share. But low and behold every July ( middle of month to end) they give me a huge bag of chanterelles. I think that its funny, I wont tell them where i pick the morels and they wont tell me where they pick the chanterelles so we just share our picks. hen of the woods, honey mushrooms, oysters, boletes are abundant where i live. Sept-Oct. I pick bags full of them. too much sometimes. I get sick of cleaning them and preserving them. Give alot away. oh well any tips on chanterelles ( what kind of grounds) is appreciated. dont want your spots, just a tip . thanks

Chaterelles

May 19 2008, 4:48 PM 

Hey Shelly - If you check my message postings, we find them up by Crater Lake - on the way up all over the side of the road on the banks. We find them earlier than July! These are our next 'shrooms to pick. Crater Lake area is great for the Black Trumpets as well - those are in July. There are numerous old road cuts through the woodlands in this area. The Black Trumpets(black chanterelle)are all along the woodland roadways in the Black Birch areas. You will find all different kinds of shrooms in this area, especially to the left between Blue Mt. Lakes and Crater Lake. Lots of Black Bear as well, so take a friend and make lots of noise. There are plenty so I have no problem sharing the location. Nancy
