Re: Id please

"trying to make a silk purse out of a pig ear" That is funny Frank!
Lots of good advice here.
Its good to know what you could get away with eating if you were in a real survival situation.
Outside of a true survival situation, it would be silly to risk eating ANYTHING that could carry such severe consequences!!
There are too many yummy things you can gather in the wild that WONT hurt you regardless of how they are prepared!!
Unless im starving to death, Ill stick with them!!

Re: Id please

Just a note in regard to drying morels... All the methods Frank mentioned work well, but I use an easier method (at least for as long as my wife permits!)

I just put them in a plastic strawberry box that have all those holes in them or even a paper sack. Then I put them in the frost free refrigerator. In about 2 weeks or so you can put them in whatever you want to store them. I obviously don't dry great amounts. But for just a few, it's as easy as can be!

I have an even easier method. It's called a food dehydrator. Set it on the lowest temperature setting and let it run for 24 hours, then move them into 1 gallon ziplock freezer bags. I have kept dried morels in ziplock freezer bags (but not in the freezer - I keep them in my basement wine cellar) for 6-7 years with no problems. I'm currently using the 2012 vintage with 2013 and 2014 in reserve.

Regarding the original thread - why try and figure out a safe way to eat poison? If broccoli had a 10 percent chance of killing you, would you try to find a way to eat it?

Just a few...

I use dehydrator now too Dave.

But I still think my favorite is layed on a nylon screen and air dried.
But it just takes up too darn much room, if you have a lot at once.
Those air dried ones rehydrate to almost perfect form & texture, more so than the dehydrator ones do.

But I'll eat them, no matter how they are dried, as long as thay are burnt by oven drying.
Don't ask me how I know about that burnt thing! LOL)
Been there... Done that. (Got the T-Shirt too! )
