I use Photobucket and copy the code to the right of the HTML, then paste it to your comment

DeniseSwim, is this the picture you are trying to post ? Those are " True Morels " only they are called Half-free Morels ( Morchella punctipes.

They look like half frees but if it looks like cotton inside they are not good to eat. Look through the, Wood/Wirt/ thread and MBD put a good pic of a verpa on page 2. it's the 2nd and 3rd pic down.

Thanks! I don't know what I was doing wrong with posting the pic, but yes, that's it. :) So, I don't think they look like cotton on the inside, but I already had them soaking in salt water. Are these half frees ok to eat?

Ok. I just researched it. I'm not confident enough these are half and not the false. Too bad cause I just found about 15 more. Bummer. I knew they were different that I had found a couple years ago. Back to the drawing board. Thanks though! :)

Yes the true half free morels are perfectly fine to eat. But if the stems are not completely hollow they are not true morels, they are called verpas and can make you very sick to your stomach, Hershey squirts, Stomach cramps, and vomiting in most cases. try checking the ones you just found, Cut them in half longwise if it looks like cotton, or spider webs inside they are the false half free or verpa. If your still not sure then by all means don't eat them. Best of luck to you, and hope we helped a little.
