Buy Local TV goes morel mushroom hunting with Gretchen in the beautiful state for Pure Michigan Morels. What is it about this passion and learn some tips. Then we travel to Big Rapids and spent some time at the Mecosta County Community expo. Duane interviews some wonderful organizations in the Mecosta County area that are doing some great things. This episode of Buy Local TV main focus is on Michigan Morels.
When researching for this blog article I came across two websites with some wonderful information on them. One is the Pure Michigan website and the other called Michigan Morels. According to the Michigan Morels website, “Black morel (Morchella Elata) in northern Michigan, usually starts slowly during the last 2 weeks of April. For the the yellow morels (Morchella Esculenta) Mothers Day is usually a big weekend. The 2nd and 3rd week of May is usually best for yellow morels. ”
According to Joshua Nowicki Pure Michigan Morels guest blogger, “Morels are very unpredictable as to where they will grow year to year. I have found them in fields, forests, the edges of paved road and even in landscaping wood mulch in busy metropolitan areas. To make it more complicated, in places where I have found many one year, I will not find any the next. ”
One thing is for certain, you will not find a map of where the best spots in Michigan are to hunt the morel mushroom. Avid hunters will share stories, recipes but one thing they will not share… where their hunting spots are.
