Morel Mushrooms have no morals!

Seriously, you can do anything with these bad boys!  Make sure you soak them before consuming and always, ALWAYS cook thoroughly.  When soaking place 1/2 lb. in quart of water with 1 Tbs. salt.  Let sit for 10 minutes.  Rise off and place on a paper towel to drain.

Delicately chop them and brown on a pan with some butter and salt.  Cast Iron skillets are one of my favorite things!

Sprinkle in soups, in a hash, or a stir fry…. in a house… or in a box… with a mouse… or with a fox.

Try in an omelet, in a grilled cheese sandwich, cream sauce and noodles… in a car… with a goat… up a tree… or in a boat!

Seriously, these bad boys can go anywhere.  But my favorite has to be that classic PIZZA!

These lovely earthy fungi can go anywhere. But my favorite has to be that classic PIZZA!

Toward the end of my experiments I did try and dry them.  They shrunk to a quarter their original size.  I'm saving them for something special.  But I'll be sure to post that moment in the future.
