The magic of the Morel mushroom


These puppies always amaze me. I love their earthy, mild mushroom flavor but it is their texture in the mouth that makes them so interesting. The porous body allows them to collapse in your mouth giving you twoDSC06213 different taste experiences. They absorb sauce and flavor well. Unlike many mushrooms that I like to sauté to golden and then reduce with alcohol or stock these are great cooked fairly quickly in a touch of butter and olive oil. You want to keep their shape but just cook them to soften them and allow them to pick up the juice or sauce that you are serving them in. They love cream; they are great with just butter and olive oil. Over polenta they are heavenly.
