Morel mushrooms are one of the most prized types of edible mushrooms found in certain parts of the world. They’re highly sought after because they have a unique taste and texture that’s unlike most other mushroom varieties, and they’re also a seasonal delicacy because they only grow in certain areas at certain times of the year. If you’re lucky enough to come across a patch of morels, you’ll want to make the most of it—but how? In this post, we’ll tell you how to identify morels and how to prepare them for consumption.
Morels are a type of mushroom that grow in the wild. They grow in the forest, and they look like honeycombs. Their brown caps grow in a bell shape. Morels can be found all over the world, but they are most commonly found on the East Coast of America, because that is where there are deciduous trees
The morel mushroom is a delicacy that comes about when conditions are just right for the first few weeks of spring. If you’ve ever seen one in real life, you know why they’re such a coveted food. They look like an alien creature! They’re very hard to spot—small and spherical, with a honeycomb-like texture—because they grow under specific types of trees that stay dormant until spring. But when they do appear in the wild, they’re impossible to miss because of their distinctive shape as well as their honeycombed caps and black coloration.
Lovers of the morel mushroom have been known to travel great distances to find them for their seasonal five-star quality. And with good reason: it’s rare to find something so delicious that’s also free. The morel is so nutritious, it has been nicknamed a “superfood.” It’s low in calories and high in fiber, protein, vitamins B1 and B2 (riboflavin), potassium and calcium. Those nutrients come from the fact that it grows in mineral-rich soil, which gives it its unique flavor. It also grows on dead trees and stumps, which explains its black coloration. Morels are best eaten fresh, but they can be canned as well
