Very lucky, we have Uncle Perry, Uncle Perry, how are you doing today? Know? You are obviously a mushroom connoisseur. We have been here for four years. So what kind of mushroom picking person are you? Know? I've been hearing more and more in the last few years about all these

mushrooms

, more and more people are getting into this and because they are so delicious, it's also a great way to get back into the woods so you're not in the forest and go out to look for them. They are really desirable or gourmet, they bring a lot of money if you want to sell them, but most of us never sell them, we just want to eat them.

s on it. Hey. I spend a lot of time in the woods, Perry, and I've never seen mushrooms, so I don't know how I don't like not seeing them. You know, hey, everyone, grab your Heinies, we're going to go mushroom picking. Let's start walking towards the forest, what are we really looking for? I usually look for elm trees, there are mushrooms that grow on many different trees, I guess apple trees and say ash trees, many of which die in recent years but maybe you will find some there, but apples, apples and elms on the main trees or look in Wisconsin, they grow on different trees like in Illinois, you'll find them on aspen trees in the west, you'll find them over Aspen, after the fires pass, it will be such a many rooms, such different areas, different trees growing back well, how long Does a tree have to be dead before a fungus starts to grow and what does it mean if you have trees that have been dead for three, four or five years because there's still fungus underneath, they usually don't produce any more after that, you want that first year with no buds on the tree and the white bark splits, that's like a big plus if you see a tree like that's what we're looking for, okay, start there, you know, we have a lot of trees behind us that they're dead so yeah I think we have a good chance in fact hopefully we'll find him okay look at the record those are two good ones. one could be good right there, that was there for the hairy Barça, you're right, it's actually a tree now, so they're going to grow, they're going to grow here, there it is, man, what's looking at Ali, seriously, this great, oh holy one, this one. - How do they stink?

That's what you have to follow because I just saw this one and suddenly we thought, well, here's another one, here's another one, go up, dig his hole. I can't woo, this is great, stop it. No, they're t-bones, you almost stepped on them, it's not your fault, so now, how would you pick up or take some? Oh, you tried to get them as much as you could, all that stem is good, you know, you don't know. I really want to rip them out and pull out the roots, there you do it, just like just give them a little twist look at the size of this one is another one and cool yeah look at the enemy oh oh holy man I can't I think it's amazing you see one and I think that hide, yeah, it's like Olsen, then they all show up, oh I see something good at work, look at that size on this one here, boo, Perry, watches, jackpot, oh no I would. oh, here's another one here now, is there a certain point where you don't pick them because they're too small?

That's like telling a nice private land that they are a very good size, but on a private land you can let them grow and under the right conditions they will continue to grow and spawn and do it more here's one, yeah, well, just because they're more just that one, only warm so far, a good one, too small with brush, well we already had a good start. I can tell you that the Perry's, yeah, it's good, it's probably a good meal right there, oh yeah, definitely, four and up. I'm excited to cook them too, so more, okay, let's move on.
I don't want to stop now, you just started getting hooked. the port, oh yeah, Perry, you're saying that although this tree in front of us will probably be a great tree, yes, it's white bark, it looks amazing, the Auburn thing is dead on top, it's a big tree, I could produce a lot, you could find them all the load you never know holy so far I think we're doing pretty well right oh they're everywhere you're so right about this vine oh my gosh it was like every place I look now I'm them seeing wow yeah here's one here here's one right here I told you here's more for here yeah you were right 100% oh we can't oh here's another one right next to this one Perry yeah oh look at the size of the head yeah, this is awesome Perry, let's talk a little bit about what are the perfect conditions for mushrooms and when you're looking for mushrooms, which side of the tree would you normally start looking at?
We start early in the season, it rises on the east side of a ridge or something. So the sun hits in the morning and warms the ground and then as the season progresses you'll be more on the west side at the back of the hills because it's warmer at that stage of spring. and heat up that hill on that side and they're going to start growing at 50 degrees at night, something like that once you see that 50 at night 48 that's when they're going to start growing, watch the crabapple trees when they bloom the lilac and lilac bushes. when they will fully bloom, that will be a sign that the five rooms are warm enough, then the lilacs are blooming, that proves that they are warm enough, roasted mushrooms and you like it when you have a mix of rain and humidity , yes, you have a Bad year, you won't find any before, okay, hey, Perry, I see more good trees on the hillside, boy, if we find one more tree like the last one, this bag will be full of golden holes, I mean, it's like gold, sure, Perry, I agree. you look at all these mushrooms right here, oh man, oh man, so what a bag, well that's Hannah, I love my big look at this, oh, here's another one, right, it's Ulsan, it's funny because Ulsan, you just like to start looking and have one in your hand.
I'm already moving on to the next quest, look closely, although oh, I told you I was going to go that way before this is crazy, that's definitely, hey, hey, I'll tell you what Uncle Perry certainly was a curveball learning this morning for me. I learned a lot about forests that I never knew anything about, as I said before. I can't believe how many times in my life I've probably walked over these mushrooms without even really recognizing what they were, so now let's tell everyone what we are. What we are going to do with them now is to cut them in half and rinse them very well.
We will put a little salt water on them to get rid of the insects and things like that. I will fry them and prepare them. Yes, that's the part. that I've been waiting all morning for everyone to put away their Heinies, let's move on to the next process here to actually cut them in half, yeah, you can see better, yeah, let's get all that out, whatever, it'll look a little neat, yes, now that I cleaned them all and cut them, let's show everyone what the next process is and I saw that you drained all the water, yes, you want to get the water.
You always had to cook all that extra moisture and There will be a lot of moisture when you start and they will come to a boil and you just keep stirring them until the water is practically cooked off and turn them over so they cook through and once they start. When popping, I'll say they're looking for moisture and then I'll add a big chunk of butter and stir it around so they brown a little bit and a little bit of salt and pepper in the game, but don't put the butter in right away. don't put the butter all the way in, okay, all the juices are cooked down now and they're starting to pop a little bit, you want to get all of that and I'm going to add a big chunk of butter, who's that?
It's mushroom time, I can smell them from far away, boy, if the aroma and the host are, boy, them, the last time I smelled something this good was ha, the last time I was at a Jennifer Lopez concert, what? who will say it? You, Uncle Perry, man, you smell delicious. I'm going to grab a fork, oh-oh-oh, yeah, mm-hmm. I can understand why you were so demanding when you were there. Sweden with me man that's absolutely fantastic oh everyone I hope.
