Next Year’s Cash Crop

I have a friend who owns a (serious agri) farm in Cincinnati, and earlier this spring I had the opportunity to forage for morels.  Morels.  Woodsy, earthy, the absolute royalty of mushrooms… we picked six pounds.

So, in cruising through Dean and DeLuca today, imagine my surprise when I saw the lovelies, dried, for sale at $220/pound.

Guess what next year’s cash crop is.
