While I (in my role as assistant Easter bunny) was hiding eggs in the rain Sunday morning, I spotted a morel hiding back behind the barn. Yesterday about dark I decided I better pick it before I forgot where it was. Then this morning I want looking in the daylight and found three more. I don’t know which species these are but I didn’t find any smaller than five or six inches. They were big ones. I put the spoon in this picture for some perspective.
While I was looking this morning I found lots of other fungi, but only those four morels:
Just google morels and you’ll get more recipes than you can shake a stick at. In my opinion simple is best. I lightly floured the morels, and sautéed them in olive oil and butter. Too bad they’re only around for a few weeks. They’re delicious.
