Many years ago a young visitor to our home excitedly pointed out that we had morels!
It never crossed my mind to eat a mushroom from the wild and certainly not one that looked like it was turned inside out! Her mother assured me that we had the real thing and gathered them all with my permission.
On-line videos show turkey hunters searching for and harvesting morels — either as a wonderful consolation prize or tasty side dish to the turkey. And I find there are many recipes for them. But I leave mine for the wildlife.
