'Trophy' Morel found

N.E. Iowa man finds 13-inch 'trophy' mushroom
May 25, 2005 - desmoinesregister.com

A morel mushroom found near a dead elm in northeast Iowa last weekend will be preserved for posterity.

Daryl Baumgartner, 34, of Edgewood said his 13-inch 'trophy' mushroom weighed in at 1 pound, 2 ounces.

He took his find to Marion taxidermist Jim Kindig, who freeze-dried it. Coupled with an airbrush application of lacquer, the process will keep the morel looking lifelike.

Morchella crassipes, commonly known as the bigfoot morel, generally appears in Iowa the week before Memorial Day.

Morel expert and author Lois Tiffany, who recently retired as distinguished professor of botany at Iowa State University, said she had not seen a morel as large as Baumgartner's.

Baumgartner said he had never seen one that large before Sunday.

"When I spotted it, I dropped my stick and told my wife, Carri, "There's the biggest mushroom you've ever seen," he said.

depending on the drying process, it is possible to freeze the mushroom so that the cells don't shrink, leaving it looking very alive.
