Dried Morel Mushrooms
Among the most highly prized of all mushrooms, Morel Mushrooms look and taste unlike any other variety. They have tall, peaked, honeycombed caps, and are completely hollow. Their flavor is described as an earthy combination of butter and faint smoke. These characteristics are said to improve or even intensify with drying.

Rinse well under cold running water to remove any possible debris, as it can become lodged inside the honeycomb-like structure. To rehydrate prior to use, place desired amount in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak until softened, typically 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to help dislodge any trapped debris. Remove from water, and examine a second time before using.
Many of the classic preparations for highly prized morel mushrooms, such as this scrambled egg dish, are quite simple. Because of the simplicity of this dish, the deep, earthy, buttery flavor and delicate texture of these spring gems shines through.
