Dry Land Fish (or morels) is an edible mushroom that grows in the woods. The location and season may vary, but it is a spring favorite in most states from April to late May. They're found just about all over the world except in extremely dry areas or along the coast lines. The thickest places it grows is in the areas of the great lakes and mid-west. They are wonderful and tasty!

You can grow your own instead of going out in the woods to find them yourself or you can order them from a supplier online.
