So with some very helpful insight from Breck I finally found some morels near my house in Louisville!http://i1374.photobucket.com/albums/ag415/noosupe4u/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20140407_194502_119_zps03a224c7.jpg

I usually get a few but I haven't found any yet. Anyone want to share their recipes? I battered and fried the last batch but I don't know what I'm doing and ended up with some soggy mushrooms.
BTW we call them "hickory chicks" here around home. A lot of the old timers don't know what a morel is.http://littleriveroutfitters.com/forum/images/icons/icon10.gif

Bran,

Butter, little bit of fresh garlic, salt, and fresh ground black pepper. Mmmmm!

Bran,

Your comment on most not knowing, is soooooo, spot on!!!! Thats why this Forum can be so great!!!

Here is a great recipe:

Upon finding a mess of morels.......3 eggs with 1/4 cup of milk mixed in a bowl and set off to the side.

1 pack of saltine crackers placed in a blender till a fine powder appears and placed in a separate bowl off to the side.

Skillet heated to medium hot, with 1/8th in. butter melted.

Dip morels in egg, wrap in saltine crumbs and fry in butter till golden brown. Touch of white wine............ is fine!!!

Place on a paper towel till warm.

Enjoy, my friend.
