Mmmm..., just need some garlic (pressed from cloves, not the bottled stuff!) and butter. Are those all morels, or are some 'calf brain' mushrooms? I'm asking from ignorance as I don't go by myself, but have seen the morels and what are called 'calf brains' (the lighter colored ones?) collected in Idaho here with friends while spring squirrel hunting, but don't know if age is the only difference between the two?

I have always wondered about the smaller greenish gray ones. People say they are immature yellow ones but I don't think so. Even amongst the experts it depends on who you ask. There is a small gray variety that grows under tulip trees also. There is a very early flush of big yellow ones in a certain place here every year. It's odd because they are large and come up before anything else. Later in the season as it warms up is when you see the really huge yellow ones but these are decent sized. I think genetics has alot to do with it. If you find a tall boy beer can sized yellow one late in the season then go back to the same place the next year at the same time. Likely there will be another just as big.
