Morel Time

Morel Time

If you’re a morel mushroom lover, it’s about time. We need temperatures in the low 70s and night temperatures in the 50s. They are usually found around the bases of elms, ashes, and cottonwoods. The season is only a couple of weeks long so don’t put it off.

When hunting morels, use a mesh or breathable bag. That way, the spores can escape to make more for next year. 

I usually bring them home and soak them a few minutes in salty water to get the bugs out. Then I dry them, roll the mushrooms in flour and pan fry them.

If you can’t find any, you might be able to buy some at a farmer’s market–at a price! Happy hunting!
