Greeting from DCL-Ramps,Mushrooms-Spring bloom-Real Estate. Spring is slowly springing! I know our East Coast folks have already experienced the wonderful spring bloom so this is old news to you, but here at the lake we are trickling into that special season where the world is reborn! Foggy Tuesday morning has a layer of cool mountain mist settling over the ramps and mint that are trying to squeak their way toward maturity. If you have never eaten or even heard of ramps I would read through these articles I wrote a few years back laying out ramp basics and more importantly how to cook them.

 

What is a ramp?

 

Best ramp recipe?

Next big ticket item that you may or may not have heard of is the elusive morel mushroom that looks hideous but tastes delicious! Hunters are walking the woods as we speak trying to get a “mess” of these desirable honeycomb fungi. I would suggest if you get your hands on these jewels that you try dredging them in flour and frying in butter. I’m from the south so I usually suggest frying, uh… well… everything, in peanut oil of course which is much healthier. Some interesting nicknames…dryland fish, sponge mushrooms, merkels, or my favorite, hickory chickens.

Here’s a look this morning at the cherry trees starting to flex out of their shells just off our porch overlooking the lake.

Here are the properties that have sold over the last 30 days.  Quite a bit of turnover which is a good sign for the months to come.  http://mrislistings.mris.com/DE.asp?ID=52126367876.

 

Check out this home on the river in Friendsville with massive potential for kayakers, fishermen, or anyone that loves river life! http://vt.realbiz360.com/Listing-1270382.html
