Camp Food

Been out hiking, camping, and enjoying the spring pageantry (ok, so it's officially summer now, but it's still spring in the mountains). Oh, and harvesting a bunch of 'shrooms. The morel flush continues at higher altitudes and the spring king boletes are coming on strong. Meaty mushrooms like morels and porcini make for good eats in camp, transforming a simple dish of rice, romano cheese, and cream into something a little more special.

I'll have more to say about finding spring porcini in my next post.

That looks like just the thing for a summer camping trip. Maybe do a mushroom primer sometime for those of us who hardly know a button from an oyster?
