DescriptionMorels taste of the woods where they grow wild: smoky, earthy, and nutty. They are harvested in the spring and early summer. The honeycomb texture of the morel captures and enhances flavors. Keep morel recipes simple, so you don't overwhelm the complex taste of the mushroom itself. Morels thrive on long cooking and have the body to stand up to stewing or simmering. They are exceptionally delicious as the base for creamy sauces.
