Foraging for morels on hunting grounds in North Freedom, Wisconsin has topically little to do with imbibing in New York, however, they are equally delightful (though eating morels is even more delightful) and I imagine that the readers of Imbibe New York care for morels just as much as us. Last year, Ellen, Oscar and I arrived a week late, past prime; picking only ten in total during our rainy May stay. This year, we flew with Tim to hunt the elusive nightshade with Ellen’s pops Jim, and this year, we had much better luck.

Last weekend, Ellen, Oscar, and I flew to Wisconsin to meet her pops, so that we might go hunting…for morels. With the early onset of spring, we arrived at the tail end of the season, passing many patches in the woods where Jim later pointed he’d found fungi just the other week. And though it was nearly freezing when we landed in Milwaukee at what felt like 5 (but was really 8 am), Jim had saved what he’d found and we were optimistic that there would still be some to pick.
