Morel is an edible wild mushroom. It has irregular indentations, which give it a spongy or honeycombed appearance. It has a cone-shape cap, which ranges in size from 2 to 4 inches high and has a hollow stem. Its color ranges from a tan to an extremely dark brown. It has a smoky, nutty flavor. Generally, the darker the mushroom, the stronger the flavor. Dried morels and imported canned morels can be found in gourmet markets year-round. Fresh morels can be purchased throughout the year and fresh are available during the spring.
Freshly picked morels are usually dirty and require cleaning. Their strong, earthy flavor makes them ideal for soups and sauces.
