Like lone aristocrats, morels break earth long before most other edible mushrooms. A morel of the same specie may appear in various colors : reddish, gray, black, ashen, or brown. Because of its appearance, the morel is sometimes called "The Sponge Mushroom".
Morels are rare, and only found in the spring, making them less available (and more unique) than other mushrooms species. These tasty and somewhat interesting-looking mushrooms have an elongated shape, resembling a dry and indented pinecone, reminiscent of a sponge in texture and feel. The intensity and character of the morel flavor is not lost in drying. Morels should be fully cooked to enjoy all its flavors and aromas.
A classic dish: Morels braised in butter and deglazed with Madeira. Pair with omelets, chicken, red meat or use in soups and sauces. Soak in warm water for approximately 30 minutes before use.
