You can have your morels and eat them, too

Saturday was such a beautiful balmy day, Kansas City’s City Market was extraordinarily busy with shoppers wandering through the stalls and looking at the array of merchandise — a lot of potted plants were for sale that day, particularly fresh herbs and tomatoes. There wasn’t much fresh produce yet, but the usual assortment of farmers were on hand selling honey, baked goods, spices and fresh flowers. And one vendor was offering, for $70 a pound, a pile of beautiful morel mushrooms.

The temptation was too difficult for one friend of mine to pass up.
