    Dehydrated!! I've tried different ways of freezing. Just not as good as fresh. Dehydrated don't make good for the typical frying but they work great for cooking with.

    In one of dehydrators like used for jerky?
    Do you just soak to use for pizza etc.?

    Thanks for your input. I am sort a forager, but have not hunted for hobies before (successfully). Scrounged around for sassafras, elderberries, poke salat, various stages of cattails, passion flowers, green hickory for smoking - stuff like that.

    Yes on the dehydrator. I just throw them in with the meat n other stuff when I'm cooking. No soaking. I've tried to soak n fry but not too good. They turn out alright sauteing in butter. But I throw them in all kinds of meals. You can also just crumble them up and use like a seasoning.

    It's getting close. Lots of trees blooming!! I think it might be a couple weeks early this year. Haven't had much of a winter, don't know if that will help or hurt.

    Glassman,

    Depends a lot on whether you get a deep freeze after they get going. Chances are when starting early that heat won't be the reason they quit producing.

    Good luck ShroomMate!

    Early spring this year. I think ours will be a week or two earlier than last season. I got my first ones last year in the first week of April, so I expect my area in NW Arkansas to start around the last two weekends in March. I keep seeing folks post pics of tiny morel babies in southern Oklahoma. I am considering looking near Texarkana to see if I see any. Man, I wouldn't pick those babies they keep posting. Let those babies grow! Good luck everyone!

    I'm hoping all the old morels I came across last year that I crumbled (large yellows bigger than my hand) and spread will pay off this year. Happy & safe hunting to you all. Watch out for those slithering reptiles and be sure to spray for ticks. Wishing you all a bountiful season.

    I hate it when you log in to a message board and the only reply is from a damned spammer.

    He was selling bags with pictures of morels on the bag. Because that is exactly what every secretive morel hunter wants.... To be carrying around a bag with a picture of morels on it. Real discrete. Market research is your friend testicle bag
