These elegant mushrooms also bring a wonderful aroma to sauces and anything else they are added too.

When these expensive delicacies are reconstituted they will grow to approximately six times their original weight, making them much more affordable and no less delicious!

Morel Mushroom Recipes & Cooking Hints

Dried Morel mushrooms should be thoroughly wash under cold running water before they can be reconstituted 
by covering them with boiling water/broth and allowing them to steep for 3-5 minutes, or by added them to a simmering liquid 7 minutes before serving. The flavorful soaking liquid can then be retained for a morel sauce or soup.

Sautéed Morels:  Sauté reconstituted Morel mushrooms that have been patted dry over medium-high heat (and possibly shallots) in butter until tender, or for approximately 4-5 minutes. Serve warm as a side dish to meats such as a nice steak or on crackers as a hors d'oeuvre.

Morel Sauce: follow the recipe above and deglaze the pan with the morel soaking liquid and/or white wine, Reduce the liquid, add heavy cream, blend, and simmer until desired thickness is reached. Serve on game, meats, fowl, shellfish, pasta, and much more.

A single morel mushroomDried morels have a more intense, smokier flavor than fresh ones and have the advantage of being available year round. Most wild mushrooms can be substituted into any recipe. The morel's delicate flavor can best be appreciated by combined it with other subtle flavors. This mushroom is famous for flavoring sauces, but is also delicious breaded and fried, stewed, baked, creamed, or stuffed with dressing. Their delicate flavor is brought out best by sautéing them in butter for about five minutes on each side. For an extravagant variation, add morel mushrooms to sautéing Foie Gras.

About Morel Mushrooms


The delicious morel mushrooms are not only prized for their culinary contributions, but also as a mouth watering prize for dedicated wild mushroom hunters. Its unique appearance and exquisite flavor make it highly sought after. Darker Morels are often preferred because of their stronger flavor.

Morel mushroomThe Common Morel, Morchella esculenta, has a yellow-brown cone shaped cap, which is honeycombed and spongy looking. It is attached directly to a hollow stem. They can grow to be very large, as tall as 12 inches, but smaller sizes are much more common. Morels appear in spring growing wildly throughout North America and Europe in damp woodlands.

Some morel mushrooms are cultivated on farms under man made forests. Mushrooms grown this way areFresh morel mushrooms generally more uniform and of higher quality because of pest and disease control. The morels are then sold fresh or more often dried for sale. Dried morel mushrooms have a stronger, smokier flavor and are easily stored in a dry, airtight, and dark place for year round use.

Wild mushroom picking of any kind should be done only under the supervision of an expert who is absolutely certain they have an edible mushroom. Some mushrooms are deadly poisonous, and some poisonous mushrooms can be misidentified as Morels.
