MOREL MUSHROOMS ARE one of the many reasons I'm not a very good turkey hunter. In the woods, thoughts of these spring delicacies fill my mind when I'm supposed to be concentrating on gobblers. The mushroom that's responsible for my skewed priorities ranges in height from 2 to 6 inches, and in color from gray to yellow/tan. Morels are hollow, with a white stem and a head that,

 Morels fall into three categories: black morels, yellow morels, and half-free morels. All morels have a uniquely wrinkled cap, creating more surface area for spore growth. The cap and stem of a true morel are hollow when the mushroom is cut down the middle. Black and yellow morels are very tasty, with yellow morels being more highly prized. Both have a cap which is contiguous with the stem and does not hang over at all. When growing, the mushrooms resemble small fingers popping out of the ground. Half-free morels have a cap which is slightly disconnected from the stem, creating a small overhang.

Morels can be eaten fresh or dried. Fresh morels have a slightly chewy texture and a rich smoky flavor. They are used in a wide range of dishes, but are very popular in cream sauces, as a plain side dish, grilled, or in any other dish calling for fresh fungus. Dried, morels are often used in soups, stuffings, and stews, because the flavor of the mushroom is intensified by the drying and will be brought out by the slow cooking. Dried morels are readily available in most stores, while fresh mushrooms can be found in season in many specialty stores  Morels are delicious mushrooms which can be found growing all over the world in a wide variety of habitats every spring. Morels are among the most prized of the edible mushrooms because they have a rich and complex flavor that goes well with almost any food. Morels also have a very distinctive appearance which makes them readily identifiable, assuming they can be found at all. Morels are notorious for being very elusive mushrooms.
