    I found a whole slug of these this morning. We just moved to Eastern Tennessee in December. I need to split one down the center to make sure it's hollow, but from what I can tell it's a black Morel. Would love your opinion, because I am new to the area. [​IMG]

    A favorite of most is dredged and fried in butter. I"ll rinse mine and half them (depending on size), then do a dry-wet-dry treatment. I'll dust them in flour, then dunk them in egg, then coat them with breadcrumbs, or crackers. Then right into the pan.

    I also like mine simply sauteed with butter and little garlic and served over steak.

    WTG Justin. Very pretty black morel in my opinion. And many people prefer the taste of the black over the blondes.. Good job...

    Thank you! Are there any mushroom groups around here that go out hunting together? Would like to learn more about other species.

    Great! I will go join. I went for my evening walk and managed to pick these. There are about the same amount across the fence. So I plan on asking for permission to pick them tomorrow. [​IMG]
