Morels are a rare and elusive mushroom, which go for $50-$100 a pound at farmer’s markets. The truth is, you can find these scrumptious shrooms yourself, right in the woods around you.
Morels can be found:
Around dead elm trees or apple trees, in soil with a high pH and high lime content. They’re tricky suckers to find, but so worth it when you do! Their texture and taste are unmatched - seriously, heaven in a bite.
Once you’ve got the shrooms, fry them up in a pan with light olive oil, chives, salt, pepper, and some garlic! Happy hunting :)

Now folks, I love me some good mushrooms. One of my favorite foods. But please please please PLEASE: NEVER EAT MUSHROOMS YOU FIND GROWING IN THE WILD UNLESS YOU’RE 100% CERTAIN OF WHAT KIND THEY ARE. Some wild mushrooms are extremely toxic to human beings. Just be careful, please.
