Morels...




On one of our woodsy walks, K and I found some morel mushrooms. I confirmed their authenticity, and then took them home. (Leaving one behind to spore and make more!) Has anyone cooked these before? If so, how do you prepare them to make the most of their flavor? When I looked them up online, everyone seems to be deep-frying them, and I don't want to do that. I only have a few of them, not a whole lot, so I want to really savor their flavor.


Does anyone have an outstanding recipe to share with me? I'd love to know how to cook up some morels! Aren't they the weirdest looking mushroom? I currently have them soaking in salt water in the fridge to kill anything living in/on them. I may have to store them a day or two until I can get ingredients for cooking them... so send me your recipes, please! 


I know that they're a delicacy in France, and used in lots of French recipes. I've never eaten them before, though, so I don't know what the best way to serve them is yet. I've got my fingers crossed that someone will help! :-)

Funny, I work for the department of natural resources and just wrote up a long blog post about mushrooming the other day.

Oh! I didn't know that you can eat them. I saw them while I went bush walking and took photos of them because their ugly look, ha ha.

We ate them tonight! They were delicious!! Be sure to check inside them, if you want to try them, to make sure they're the right mushrooms. They should be hollow inside... and yes, they're weird looking!
