    Let some other people chime in before you cook them, but if you're doing them for the first time I'd just sauté them in a little butter. Or cut them in half, dip them in flour and fry them till crispy on both sides. Use margarine because butter will burn and give them a bad taste. It's ok to sauté them in butter because you're not crisping them up.

    After you've had your first taste of the morels, try them stuffed with crab, wild leeks, cheese and bread crumbs

    Wow, That looks amazing! I'm so excited!
    Do you think this is the best of the season &amp; it's almost over or do you think there's more to come?
