I was wondering how many minutes it would take to get a response. I figured you or Mike for the first to respond.

5 minutes. I figurd no more than that.

I wish I could buy them down here. I haven;t picked one since i moved here and I been Jonesin' real bad.

A few years ago I was in the KC area in the middle of morel season and was able to buy some. That was the last fresh morel I've had.

How do you like to fix them?

I was going to use wet batter and fry them whole tomorrow night. they would have been gone tonight, but dinner was close to done when I found them.

Tim, we cut them in half long ways, and soak in a mild salt water for about an hour to hour and a half. Rinse good under cold water and put in a culindar (sp.). Place in fridge, dry, with a container under them to catch the drips. Make up an egg dip as in country fried steak and dip them in and coat with cracker crumbs. Deep fry and enjoy.

Sure wish I had some. Now you got me Jones'n. Steve

We do em dry... Saltine, egg, salt and pepper and fry in butter/evoo. I have to do about 3 shakes of Tabasco and a cold beer and I am happy, happy, happy.:wings:

Actually it was my neighbor Steve (tall guy, thin and kinda reddish hair, remember him?) that made the spot. they were growing in the ditch under a couple of dead elm trees, right where you would expect them to be.

Mmmm...they're great sliced, then sauted in butter with a little s&p. I like them best them fried though.

Do you get them out your way as well?

How do you fry them, split, sliced, whole, stem on, or just the cap?

I just trim the brown off the end and split them lengthwise. If they're real big, I quarter them lenghtwise.

Tim, we get them out this way too! I'm still using some that I dried from last season...but I'm just about out of them.

Season should start up here in a week or two. :thumbs up:

I've never had them. I did see them last weekend at the store but passed on them. I'll give them a shot some day. I've heard nothing but good about them.

Another way that is good ist to fry in butter then thicken with some flour to make a gravy. Real tasty and easy that way!
