Recently, during phone conversations with my father, I've been told of the morels he has found and the wonderful meals of these breaded and fried mushrooms he has eaten this past month.

The last time I saw fresh morels in the grocery store, they were selling for about $33.00/lb.... I immediately soaked the mushrooms in salt water for about 15 minutes which helps to cleanse them. I then rinsed and gently dried with paper towels, then did a very large dice and prepared them the way my neighbor Debbie suggested....
