A Local Delicacy, Morel Mushrooms Are Popping Up In Woods Across West Virginia

During the long winter months, what part of spring do you look forward to the most? Maybe it’s longer days or warmer temperatures. Maybe it’s seeing the beautiful flowers blooming or getting started on garden planting. Or maybe you’re a forager, and what you look forward to most of all about a West Virginia spring is the opportunity to take to the woods to harvest some wild state delicacies like morel mushrooms.

If you’re a forager interested in morels, you probably also know about another spring delicacy to be found in West Virginia’s woods: ramps. Both morels and ramps are tasty additions to many a spring recipe, and they definitely capture a bit of the wild, resourceful spirit that defines so much of the Appalachian culture. Enjoy!
