the morel of the story
The mushrooms were sauteed in olive oil with a little salt and garlic and were honest to God, PERFECTION! It is probably good that they are hard to find because otherwise I would put them in every dish the Kitchen makes and then people wouldn't appreciate the morels enough! Such a good, earthy flavor, with a texture that is slightly chewy. Agh! So good!
- Morels are hollow, so you just pinch the stem off to collect.
- Carry a mesh collecting bag; the spores spread while being jostled around, this means you are ensuring future generations of morels!
