You found them! The elusive prized mushroom known as the... Morel Mushroom. Here is how to keep these prized beauties to enjoy them all year long.
With the passage of winter comes wet soggy ground, which are perfect conditions for mushroom growth. In our area there is one mushroom that creates a mad dash to collect it: the Morel.
Behold, the glorious morel mushroom: This seasonal fungus is truly one of nature’s treats—and it’s free if you know where to find it.
Morel hunting adventure and what to do with your meager loot.
It’s a cool, rainy day. We are in the wilderness, hiking through bushes and trees, noses down, eyes scanning the forest floor, hunting. In my pocket is a knife, a net bag and hopefully, my car keys. It’s not big game we are after, it’s morels.
If you should be so lucky as to have more morels than you can eat fresh within a few days of picking, then drying is a good preservation method. Instructions also included for freezing and canning.
