Fresh French Morels
$1,699 by kg
A very tasty mushroom but as with all Morels it must be well cooked before consumption.
Fresh, unwashed morels should be stored in a paper bag and used as quickly as possible. You can also store them in the fridge for up to a week, but this can also dry them out and alter the texture.
To prolong the life of your morels, you can dry them by laying them out in the sunlight and rotating them. Dried morels will last up to six months stored in an airtight container. When you’re ready to use them, simply tap them with some water and wait. Pinch them a few times until they are plump and ready to use. Dried morels can also be frozen, and thawed for use in soups or purees.
Packaging: Kraft bag
Storage: in the fridge but eat quickly (within 2 days)
Usage: To prepare morels, clean them with cold water and dry quickly before they soak up the water. Then, slice them up and cook them however you choose — keep in mind morels shouldn’t be eaten raw as they can cause stomach cramps. It’s best to cook morels simply so you can truly savor their flavor. A simple sauté with butter will help to best bring out the mushroom’s unique qualities.You can also add morel mushrooms to this savory wild mushroom sauce that’s perfect for grilled meats.
