I do caution you to not hunt for Morrels unless you know exactly what you are looking for. I will not take responsibility if you hunt these and do not find the right ones and then cook them, and eat them and get poisoned. No, no, no, I think you should read up on them, and even take a buddy with you, if you plan to hunt them. Four eyes and two brains are better than what one person has. OR what I really think is that you should do the easy thing and just buy them in the store. This way you are safe.
Soak Morrels overnight in heavily salted water. Rinse well, and cut in half. Morrels should be hollow inside clear up into the tops. There is such a thing as a false Morrel, and they are not hollow. You should not eat those, they are poisonus. Ok, so once the morrels are cleaned and sliced. Coat them with some flour. Then in a heated skillet with lot's of butter and a bit of olive oil, along with lots of fresh garlic, add morrels. Fry until brown. They will get soggy. They don't usually crisp up, but they will get browned. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain off excess oil. Enjoy!! They would taste great mixed in with some thin cooked spaghetti covered with some basil, butter, parmasean cheese and topped with the mushrooms. So, in that case, don't drain the excess, just mix it right in with your noodles.Yum!
