Big Post-Fire Benefit: Bumper Crop Of Morels

May 14, 2018

The fire sweeps through and blackens everything in its path.  Then, a few weeks or months later, green shoots. 

And morel mushrooms, lots and LOTS of morels in some places. 

Recent fire seasons have laid waste to large patches of forest, but also encouraged the growth of the tasty mushrooms. 

Johnny Anderson, one of the owners of Foods In Season, is a big fan of morels. 

He visits to talk about their post-fire abundance... and their uses in meals, along with donations going to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
