    Chocolate morels. I think that’s mandatory for the Minneapolis crawl.

    A Shenandoah Valley pathologist once told me of a woman who had murdered three husbands with Aminita Verna.  As many newlyweds do, she would contract for life insurance on the unsuspecting groom.  Then, after a while, she would serve him a tasty dish which included the fatal fungus.
     
    As they lived in the remote mountains west of the Valley she would "care" for the suddenly fallen ill husband at home for a few weeks, taking them to the hospital only as they approached death from multiple organ failure.  By that time (she hoped) all the incriminating spores would have passed and the pathologists would be mystified by these strange deaths.
     
    But, as Auric Goldfinger once observed:  "Once is happenstance.  Twice is coincidence.  Three times is enemy action."  So, when the third victim came in, the pathologists were ready.
     
    I wonder if she ever served them dipped in chocolate.

    Rodale Books has stopped production and distribution of “Tales from a Forager’s Kitchen,” by Minnesota author/blogger Johnna Holmgren (foxmeetsbear.com) because of potentially dangerous misinformation on eating certain raw wild items, specifically mushrooms and elderberries. Holmgren, who lives in the woods in Washington County, has a wide following on social media, particularly Instagram where she has more than 130,000 followers. Her book was published in May. BuzzFeed first wrote about the issue on Aug. 1, in an article detailing the concerns of health experts, as well as highlighting critical comments from foragers that appeared on Amazon’s reviews of the book.”

    You don't eat raw elderberries. Mushrooms you have to know what you are doing when you pick them period. You can eat plantain,dandelion greens,  wild mustard, catails and several others which should be cooked anyway.I'm sure the marines and special forces recieve instructions in regards to wild foods. Don't believe  everything you read.
