why?

because they are delicious. and for the past year, my brother has been trying to get me to go morel hunting with him. he has found lbs of these supposedly deliciously decadent fleshy fungi. and he has eaten EVERY LAST ONE. so yea, these things must be amazing.

so how do you like your shrooms?

sauteed, deep fried, raw, on cereal?

let's talk people.

If you're ever making turkey burgers, I suggest giving some mushrooms about 10 pulses in the processor and adding them -- they help drier meats retain moisture better (that and gelatine).

Interesting. I'll have to try that next time I make turkey burgers. To retain the moisture, I've been using eggs, but I don't know if that is the best way to do it or not.

I suspect that the eggs don't help retain moisture as well (they give off moisture just like the meat), but are used to bind the meat. The mushrooms act as a sponge. But you really don't need a binder for ground turkey because it sticks and forms a patty pretty well. Ground chicken on the other hand . . .

And I don't pretend to take credit for this -- America's Test Kitchen gave me this idea.

Edit: the mushrooms give off a beefy flavor as well, which is great for ground turkey and chicken.

Good idea nonetheless, thanks for sharing :)

I need to learn more about 'shrooms, both the kind you eat and the kind used for tripping. I like both uses.

^ That looks great! I may have to try grilling a portobello, I've never tried. I wonder if they go well with a smoke flavor such as apple or cherry wood?

Me too friend, me too. Now that I'm old, I have no idea where to even get those fuckers. Fortunately I can still find sweet mary jane, but I have no idea where to even go for shrooms (other than going to a college campus and being an old creepy guy asking if any of the college kids have some).

Give it a try and report back.

I could get them pretty easily I just have no time for them any more. You can't trip balls with a toddler in the house. The same goes for the green except for some special occasions.

I found an old puffball today. I see now why they're given that name. Not because you smoke them, but because they blow out their spores like a puff of smoke. It's a worthwhile hobby to get into i reckon.

I had those kind of mushrooms in Baltimore. They totally mellowed me out and gave me a good feeling throughout the show. An added bonus was I didn't care about beer, so didn't spend money on it, or have to pee every 1/2 hour.

That was my first time since 2007...the older I get the harder it is to come across them. Fortunately the friend I went with had a small stash stored in his freezer and we munched them down before we headed inside. Those little fuckers are fun. Hopefully I can find some more soon, I think it was the last of his stash.
