    To each their own. This is akin to someone commenting about the cost of your system and asking what the music costs.

    Those 3 in the top left are false morels and are poisonous. If the cap separates from the stem they are the false variety.

    Those 3 in the top left are half free morels (Morchella Punctipes), called peckerheads.

    The stem is connected to the cap half way up.

    The Verpas have a pithy stem and the stem is connected at the very top of the cap.

    I don’t get why it’s called a peckerhead🤣🤣

    ...or there. Anywhere. Just not stuck at home. The world is too GD vast and wonderful to stay at home.

    I can't even travel 20 miles to a historical place that no one ever goes too. Social distancing is the norm because no one ever goes there.

    I'll Soak them in water (some prefer salt water) in the sink to drive out the lil critters .
    Cut them length wise, spray the insides and remove from the sink. Put on paper towels to drain.

    Saute them in butter for 5-8 minutes. Enjoy!66d3a05uroxq.jpg

    You can also dredge them lightly in flour with a little salt and pepper before you sauté them in the butter.

    He, or she (or they -- not sure about spiders) was very cooperative while I set up the measuring tape & snapped a bunch of photos. I like the way the flash glinted off its eyes -- although in the picture I posted above, only one of them is really glinting :)
