WHEN I GOT HOME WITH MY MORELS :::::
i know it can be futile to attempt to grow morel mushrooms on purpose, but it's always worth a try. I wrapped the mushrooms in a cheese cloth and took them into the woods - shaking the cloth lightly to let spores loose into the air.
and my second trick, in hopes to grow my own... i filled a bowl full of spring water, let the morels soak for an hour or so --- then i took the spore filled water outside and spread it around in spots I thought they'd enjoy propogating.
- I cut each one down the middle (after rinsing it) , added ramps (wild leeks), parsley and rosemary to a pan.
- Alot of moisture came from the mushrooms, which i drained off twice. Once the water was drained off enough, i added some oil and let them cook on low/medium for about 7-10 minutes (until darker brown.)
- I put it over (gluten free) rice pasta with olive oil and pink salt!
