|I enjoy fancy door knobs, and this one is beautiful.|
They taste the best when they are freshly prepared. In this area, they like to fry these mushrooms.
The mushrooms are soaked in salt water to remove any dirt and bugs, sliced and put back in salt water until they are ready to be cooked.
Cast iron skillet is a must when frying these mushrooms. Oil and butter are used to fry up the morels after they are dredged in seasoned flour.
Everyone tries to sneak a freshly fried morel mushroom, but often times your hand will get a swift slap. I was glad that I was able to enjoy a few of these yummy seasonal treats.
Do you have morel mushrooms in your area? Have you ever tasted these mushrooms?
Here is a pretty picture of someone's flower display in that area.
