morels? no problem!
A friend of mine, an avid mushroom hunter, gave me some of his most recent morel haul. So generous! It was my first time having morels to cook with, so he also gave me preparation and cooking instructions.
Soak them for about an hour in salted water? No problem!
Drain them, dust them with flour and fry them in butter? No Problem!!
Enjoy these simply-cooked, luxurious morsels with a beer? NO PROBLEM!!!
Meaty and earthy yet delicate...I can see why people are maniacs for these shrooms. And darn! Apparently I missed a class dedicated to these fanatic-having fungi at the Kitchen Conservatory this week. Kelly from Sounding my Barbaric Gulp went, and was in charge of the ravioli. This was just after she posted about her fried false-morels (heh. peckerheads!). Now she needs your help, morel-ites...are these morels she found too dry?
So now I need to get my butt in gear and go hunting...the season is short!
