July Surprise

In the south, April showers always bring May flowers. With the last few weeks of plentiful rain, the addition of heat and humidity produced a bumper crop of mushrooms. Loads of them, more than I’ve seen in years, as in my yard resembles a mushroom farm, especially near the woods. Sizes, shapes, and colors vary—large, small, flat, domed, white, yellow, brown, and reddish orange. Based on my amateur identification attempts, some are edible and others are poisonous. Since I err on the safe side when choosing food, the mushrooms served at my house come from the grocery store, sliced and ready to eat.

If you like mushrooms, what’s your favorite way to eat them?
