    We found too many morels to eat (woohoo!) so I thought I would try dehydrating them (pics below).

    We had about 2/3 of a pound left over and they dehydrated down to 6 ounces. They smelled amazing when dried and felt as light as paper.

    I popped one into a glass of water for 30 minutes or so and it re-hydrated right back up to normal size again. It did feel a bit more "delicate" than when fresh, and a bit more on the mushy side of firm...but smelled about the same as fresh.

    These are going in soups, tomato sauce and whatever moving forward.

    So glad we tried our luck with the dehydrator...Will do the same with all extra morels moving forward.

    Nice. I need to get out and try to find some. I had a buddy give me some once.

    Great idea. I hope you run into this problem every year!

  4. I live on the wrong side of Minnesota to easily harvest Morels or chaga.
    When I lived in Seattle, I connected with a family that regularly went dungeness crabbing.
    The ultimate breakfast was crab and morel mushroom omelettes.
