I thought I would re-post this and make a thread for it. Maybe someone will find it useful for preserving their morels for later use. Hi, You might already know this method.I learned it from my aunt. First I cut them in half, soak them in tubs of plain water because they soak up water very fast and I find that they become to salty if you add the salt right away. Next I drain them of the water and soak them in salt water to kill bugs. Then I rinse them one last time and lay out tin foil in the freezer and lay them out flat then another layer of tin foil, fill it up and continue the same steps. After they have frozen, I fill one gallon zip-lock bags and keep them frozen. This way they never stick together in the bags because they have already froze and you just take handfuls out for what you want to cook. It works great and they taste perfect and last a very long time like this.
