As a child I tramped the woods for hours in search of this delicacy. Some years the harvest was plentiful while other years they were very scarce. My husband had never tasted a morel until we were married. Now he is the mushroom hunter. So when do you hunt the morel? My late mother always said the morel mushrooms come and go with the apple blossoms. In Ohio that was usually the first two weeks of May.
How did I prepare these morels? Saute in butter until the mushroom "flattens" its shape. Once the rounded shape is gone, finish with your recipe; don't overcook. I added some cream for a sauce and topped a grilled steak. Now that is eating like royalty!
