Wild Morel Mushroom Omelet

When I was at the farmer’s market the booth with the wild mushrooms had morels!  This late in the year?  Well I grabbed some and came home and made this amazing omelet for breakfast~

If you can’t find any fresh morels, you can usually find them dehydrated in the produce department of the grocery store.  Simply reconstitute them in warm water until they are tender, then drain.

Grilled Bolete Mushrooms

Wild Mushrooms – I love them.  My husband and I like to go out and gather them ourselves, but some years we just aren’t as successful as we’d like.  That’s when I hit the farmer’s markets!

I purchased some gorgeous  wild boletes – Boletus Edulis.  In France they call them cepes – in Italy they are porcinis – in any language they are fantastic!

We had them with smoked ribs and a home-brew…..And they were amazing!  An earthy, sweet flavor that melted in your mouth.

Fruit Vinegar – The Flavors of Summer

I love preserving the bounty of the summer here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have so many wonderful berries and stone fruits – fragrant and edible flowers like lavender.  One way is to freeze them, but another way is to make them into fruit flavored vinegar.

Small bottles of a homemade vinegar make great gifts.  Make a label and add some recipes for using them onto the neck of the bottle – and there you have a great gift!

Making them is so easy!!  You just need three ingredients… Continue reading
