my cousin and her husband have found 80 or better so far and my neighbor found one the other day. I think it's still a little early for them, but if we get some warm days they will pop up.

I LOVE them, but I can't think of anything to compare them to! They are unique I guess. My Dad finds them every year near his house, usually after a good rain when the sun shines for a couple days. He always says, "they'll be popping up now!" He finds tons of them.

Roll 'em in flour, add a little salt and pepper, and fry 'em in bacon grease. They are soooo good that way, but bad for your blood pressure!!

you can also dip them in cream before rolling in the flour and they really soak up the salt so put alot of salt on them. my husband said the best place to find them are where an elm tree has died and i suppose other trees too. we love them....

make sure you soak them in salt water for 20-30minutes to run any bugs out of them. I would love some, I would compare them to the crusty part of home-fried chicken too
