The season is here and I could not be happier. Todays find is just the tip of the iceberg, we are heading straight into mushroom season. Remember mushroomlandia? Many mushroom recipes are on the horizon. Mushroom ravioli will be first, maybe a soup maybe a mushroom and caramelized onion on crispy bread or a bruschetta, I have already made quesadillas the easiest thing a human can make, who knows I will also be experimenting since I know there will be more of these big boys. Can you tell I really like mushrooms? Mushroom napoleons with wild ramps, mushroom pizza, grilled mushrooms, mushroom florentines, I am going crazy with ideas but I want more, does anyone have some new and unique way I can prepare mushrooms, does anyone have an old fashioned way, can anyone come up with something besides 'foam' - my grandmother used to dry them and then grind them and deep fry them with a batter and put them in chile during lent (my other grandmother not the one with the coffee can) I had a city grandmother and a country grandmother the country grandmother taught me about wild mushrooms, the city grandmother taught me not to take any crap from any of her 13 children - the country grandmother had a mom, my great grandmother that made cheese and she died when I was 15.
