Signs of spring are starting to emerge. When we came across some miniature morels at the market we smiled because with them in our kitchen the quantity of snow outside ceases to matter. The change in seasons has begun. What was particularly striking about these morels was their perfect appearance and heady aroma. The small honeycombed fungi smell of earth and forest, conjuring images of damp trees and moist soil. It's easy to picture small green shoots appearing nearby and imagine that fiddle head ferns and ramps are not far behind this first offering of Spring.
