May God bless the Morel Mushroom and the Internet! I was born and raised in Indiana, one of the Morel Mushroom states. We moved to TX for ten yrs then back up again to NJ for the past ten. Neither state is a Morel Mushroom state, though there are a few up here in north central NJ now and then, there just isn't enough woodland here to hunt them and I ain't as young as I used to was! There are many states where they grow, and there are two main kinds, the gold which grow in IN, MI, WI, OH, PA, IL, and the black which grow in ID, WA, OR. Golds from WI and blacks from OR being the most prolific. The tastes are similar, but like others I have noticed that when using dried morels to flavor gravies, sauces, soups, pasta, etc, the black do pack a little more punch in flavor. I still prefer the gold, but it's a matter of personal preference. You can't grow these things on a log or from a kit so do not waste the money! But thanks to the Internet and some enterprising folks who hunt them for a cash crop every year, you can find them on eBay and on a few specialty online stores via Google, in the early spring...start looking for them on e a week or so at the end of April, beginning of March, you'll find them for sure if you use that method all the way up to the middle of May usually. There are some people take pre-orders, though I've never done that. Check the sellers' feedbacks and read about how they pack and ship, ***make sure they aren't sending fresh dried. Just got 6lbs in! :)
