Earthworms are pretty good too when you swallow them whole.

Well, not really knowing where to hunt, and not having any time to perform a hunt, I took the city way out and *bought* Morels. Now keep in mind they run $50 / pound, so it wasn't like I was gonna buy a pound or anything. No, I bought, *two* mushrooms. Yep, just two. Big ones, but still, just two.

I sauteed them in butter tonight and they were nice. Not really worth $50 / pound, I don't suppose, but they were good and I got to enjoy a treat.

A few years ago I found *one* morel growing in the woods out behind my house. I sauteed it and boy it was good! But I haven't seen any since, and sure do wish I could find some more.
We have lots of Chanterelles in the woods around my house. Good, but nothing like morels.
Anyone have any tips about where to look for them?

I could tell you, then I'd have to kill you......

My best places have been a red cedar grove with a pretty open floor, a dense thicket of arm sized saplings, and often, around recently cut down elms. Of course I have also found them in grassy roadsides and in leaf litter under mature forest.
I'm not scared of the dark, it's the things IN the dark that make me nervous. :)

Here in Ohio they are mostly found on hilltops in mature forest early, and under fruit and dead elm trees late in the season. This year though was a fantastic one for morels and they grew pretty much everywhere. My brother and I came up with over 400. Found some more yesterday but they were dry since the season here is pretty much over.
