Now that Ive found my honey hole, Ive been picking bucketful's every other day for the past week. But now what? I have been giving them a quick rinse and pop them in my Excalibur food dehydrator . I then vacuum seal them. My house reeks of morels. So I ask you .....what do you do with them all?????

EBAY!!! Take a look at ebay. Dehydrated morels go for up to $200.00 for 2.5 oz.

I started out incredibly strong finding a couple patches with so many I was in amazment. 2 days after Mothers Day I could not find anymore in my areas. Have not found any since. I am in Salamanca, Ny. Lots of mountains here so I am going to head upwards on south facing slopes. I hope I am heading in right direction.

I'll definitely check out ebay. Thanks Iron. I'll also check out some NYC restaurants this weekend. I never realy thought about selling them, that was never my intention but I do have a lot. I figure that if I keep them dehydrated and vacuum sealed they should last a while. I mean, how many of these things can you eat????? Each one is like a small steak.

Scope, you can slice them in half longwise, give them a quick sautee in a little butter... don't fully crisp them up, but let them shrink a little. Let them cool a little then seal them with a food saver bag and freeze them. Then just break some off and finish pan frying whenever you want. Those are some beauties! Are those from an orchard or the forest?
I hope my honey-hole has something to offer this weekend...

Scope,you've had an awesome first timer's season!I'm envious.The honey hole you found is unreal and maybe a little overwhelming,like having 5 deer hanging opening day.DEAL WITH IT! I like to give out "extra"dried shooms as holiday gifts along with various canned and baked goods.They keep well dried in the freezer and get better with age.It's been a productive season but next year may be different.I wish I had your problem!Big pat on the back and congrats!!

Thanks Lynk. I was truly lucky. At this point I am going to continue dehydrating and packing in vacuum containers. I ground a bunch of the bits and pieces and have 3 containers of morel dust. I thought about selling them but I probably wont do that.That would kill the joy of the hunt.........kinda like selling your venison or turkey meat. I traded some for innoculated shitake logs and will probably wind up storing most and giving away some. In early October Ill be in Tuscany Italy and would like to go truffle hunting. I am thinking of bringing some quality morels and see if I can trade them for some of those white truffles. I don't know if morels grow in Italy. Life is beautiful....enjoy each day as it comes. Happy hunting to all.

Fog, I sent you an email at 7:30 this morning. Just got in from a foray. Did pretty well. Will report on the Oneida County tread.
