Been looking for Morels in the grove the past few years and today I found these. Just wanting a little verification before I try and eat them. Researching this a little and found there is a false Morel but they can be eaten if cooked good.

Those are morels. Happy eating!

 

The ones that look like morels and are inedible are solid cored, not hollow.

    Ok What is the deal with morrels?  Where do you look for them? how do you cook them?  Just looking for some info, I have heard of them but never really looked into it.

we look for morels by dead elm trees in the woods..........or really any old fallen rotted tree.  T o fix them soak in salt water overnight in the fridge.    then drain the water use egg cracker crumb mix roll the mushrooms in and fry till golden brown then enjoy!!!!!!!!!

 Soak in salt water overnight as above. Fry in eggs, put in salads, on top of steaks, whatever they are awesome !!

The only mushroom I harvest from the wild. The rest require knowledge like farmer john says. Enjoy !!

Stop that, Kris. You're not close enough to steal them, anyways.

Nate, could you add your EXACT adress to the member map please? I've been driving around for two hours and have been shot at once.

TIA

If I had a choice between starving to death and eating morel mushrooms,  I'd have to think about that one for a while.

So that was you. I didn't have my glasses on for a good shot ,lol!!

You just had to follow the little yellow lines... at least what what I do to get home :)

Common mushrooms ain't that bad. I just love them, I always wanted to start a mushroom farm and grow many different types but its on my bucket list so maybe one day.
Not the ones that make you see purple elephants, the kind you cook with.

You are kidding aren’t you? Mo. has some of the finest  morel woods around. Across the river my boys have no trouble selling them for $30 a pound and if you want to go to Chicago a lot of restaurants will buy $50 a pound . So around here they are a delicacy.

No kidding,  I just don't like them.  Haven't had one since 1989 when a batch made me so sick I really thought I was going to die.  

Morels are treated like a winning lottery ticket around here.  People sit on their tailgate along the main drag and sell them every spring. I've seen prices fron $20/gallon to $20/quart! 

My sister lives in Kansas City and says I should go looking for them for her.  I think she would pay $20/quart for them.  I tell her I don't like her that much.  Too many ticks and too much walking.  :(

Around here there needs to be a market for ticks during mushroom season, I'd be rich!  ~~  Lowell
