    I got York and Adams through www.jungseed.com . It sounds like they get a lot bigger than their wild cousins! I hope we don't end up moving before they bear.

    I have about a third of the smaller morels in the dehydrator right now. The rest went home with DS and co-picking his friend. Morels.JPG

    I don't do morels since I nearly died from eating them 40 years ago. (Long story) But I am not above preserving them for a long cold winter day. DS loves mushroom soup.

    Onion
    Tomato
    Chilli
    Fenugreek Seed
    Mustard Seed
    Cumin Seed
    Fennel Seed
    Coriander Seed
    Garlic
    Red Vinegar
    Sugar
    Salt and Pepper

    Picked, chopped, sauteed and reduced, Delish!

    Put some green peas in the freezer. I had some chives in the dehydrator that finished so I bottled that and put some parsley in the dehydrator.

    Thank you, @Ridgerunner, I never thought of dehydrating chives. Now would be a great time to do that. Both regular chives and garlic chives are good right now.

    I cut them into really short pieces. They dry in practically no time, the fastest I've ever had anything dry in my dehydrator. Be prepared, there is a real strong odor while they are drying. I run my dehydrator in a detached storeroom. With that odor I was glad I did.

    I read best to freeze them first to kill any bugs that could hatch in the dried chives, so I am cutting and freezing until I get enough to fill the trays.

    I canned 7 half pints of plum jelly, 6 pints of sweet pickle relish, and the other day 8 pints of dill relish, dehydrating cherry tomatoes and extra tomatoes, and herbs, freezing blackberries to make jam later and elderberries.

    That looks like an interesting set-up. I like those air locks. Looks like you keeping it in the dark so it stays light colored?
