Hey Sharon those Morels look awesome! Even though Iíve never tried them, I think Iíll like them! Hoping to find some just like that!

Boco, Iím sure if I found a Morel the size of a pine cone it would be easy to identify. These little babies with a long stem are throwing me off. I donít know if this is how they start off and fill in the stem or if these are false morels, or the half free morel. I just donít know for sure. But I am intrigued by these and I enjoy the hunt!

The head and stem are all one piece and they are completely hollow.That is your positive identifying factors.(in conjunction with the way they look)
I like them sliced and fried in butter.
Some people soak them in salt water to remove the little beasties that live in them,i just slice them in half lengthwise,rinse and into the frypan.
if you like "mushroom flavour" you will love the morels.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Just make sure the stem is connected at the bottom rim of the cap. If it is connect to the cap inside,and the cap hangs like a skirt, you have verpas. Verpas will also have what looks like cotton or spider webs in the stem. Verdad will give you a bad bellyache.
