Here's How To... Pick Morel Mushrooms


To harvest a morel, pull it up from the earth, cut off the root end with a sharp knife or pinch it off and place in a bag. Once harvested, split the morel lengthwise and wash thoroughly to remove grit or bugs. They can be eaten fresh or storied for months with proper preservation.

To preserve morels, freeze in water or dry-freeze in plastic bags or containers. They can also be dried in the open air or in a dehydrator and then stored in sealed jars. Reconstitute in water when ready to use.
