Perfect recipe for cleaning and frying fresh morels! Do NOT fry in butter unless you're willing to change the butter after every panful. Hot oil & fast frying to retain moisture! Bless the Morel Mushroom & eBay and Goog!e! Born & raised in IN, a Morel Mushroom state, we haven't lived in a Morel state for over 20 years. There are many states where they grow & there are two main kinds; Golds grow in IN, MI, WI, OH, PA, IL, and Blacks grow in ID, WA, OR. Golds from WI & Blacks from OR usually the most prolific. The tastes are similar. Like others have noticed, when using dried morels to flavor gravies, sauces, soups, pasta, etc, the black do pack a little more punch in flavor. It's personal preference. The word earthy is used most often, but you can't describe the complex flavor they add, not really. You can't grow these from any kind of kit. DO NOT waste the money! Like truffles they only grow wild for a short time. Thanks to enterprising folks who hunt them for a cash crop every year, you can find them on eBay & a few specialty online stores via Google, Start looking for them on eBay each week starting early/mid April & you'll find them up thru late May. Check sellers' feedbacks, how they pack & ship, and their guaranty policy.***Make sure the listing is NOT for fresh dried!*** Due to their very nature they are pricey but worth it! Youtube, Morelmasters.com & Wiki have the best info for hunting & handling. I'm off to clean, dry, freeze & fry my annual 6lbs! Yummy dinner! :)
