As an avid, seasoned mushroom picker, I wanted to share my experience and help mushroom-pickers start picking the right way without having the heartache of having mushrooms discarded by buyers because they were not picked correctly.
I got the idea for writing this booklet while standing in line forever at a buyers station. Hot, dirty, tired and hungry I watched while the buyer patiently explained to pickers what he wanted. He sorted through each basket and actually sent away people to reclean their mushrooms or refused to buy because what was offered was too wet, crushed or dirty. So I consulted a few very experienced pickers and heeded the complaints of the buyers. The result was the booklet “Fire Morels For Profit”
