Here is my happy introduction to morels.
I am a fine art photographer from New York in Minnesota visiting my friends Kevinn and James. James is a hairdresser and interior designer. Kevinn is a realtor.
I have never heard of morel mushrooms, but since I like mushrooms, I was happy to try them. They caught my eye the moment they were delivered.
Information about the morel.
- They sprout yearly.
- They are rare and short lived.
- They cost $35 a pound at the local market.
Morels may be dried to preserve them. We tried the oven.
We also tried air-drying, which was much better. The air did not shrivel the morels.
The following night, James made fettuccine with asparagus and morels; simply a piece of heaven.
I hope you have enjoyed this ode to morel.
