I was not able to collect many mushrooms in the local forest in 2014 as I have in past years, so I decided to try my hand at cultivating morels. I inoculated a 4' x 4' compost bed with morel spawn in the spring. It was supposed to take a year before any might be collected, but in the fall I was stunned to find about 5 pounds of these beauties. Most were sauteed in butter and served on steak. The rest went on my signature white pizzas.
