Magnificent Midwest Morel Mushrooms Mature in May

There I go with more alliteration. Well it’s that time of year when morels spring out of the ground. The first year we moved into our house, a neighbor told me that he knew all the good places to find morels in our woods. Usually near dead or dying elm and apple trees. This year, however, my middle son found some right by our house near a dead lilac bush. Bruce pointed at the ground and initially thought it was some kind of wasp nest due to the mushroom cap’s honeycombed structure. Lo and behold, they were five untouched beautiful morels. What to do with them? Very simple. A quick sauté in a skillet with a little butter. Nothing fancy. At $40 per pound I don’t want to do anything to mess them up. Maybe a side of steak to go with them? Yum.
