    I would suggest 50/lb for 1 or 2 pounds and 40/lb for 3 lbs or more. But I haven't the bounty as Hobler, I don't get in a season what he gets in a half a day.

    Yes it is fun but it is also hard! I stopped selling to one of my customers because he devalued the product. I wasn't ever in this hobby for the money, let him find them elsewhere. Dried morels make great xmas presents.

    I can't help you as I have no experience with Black Morels. Slice one length wise and that should reveal the answer.

    The wife tells me she used parts of different recipes online and ended doing it this way:

    • 15 medium to large morels
    • 16 oz. crab meat
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 6 cloves garlic, minced
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 cup of scallions
    • Half of a Vadilia onion
    • Cup of chopped parsley
    • 2 Tbsp. of Sherry
    • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

    Melt butter in sauce pan on medium heat. Toss in garlic, scallions, onions and parsley with a little salt and pepper. Cook about 5 -10 minutes, put in sherry and let cook another 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add crab meat, mix well. Heat for a couple minutes.

    Melt butter and brush on outside of mushrooms. Spoon mixture into mushrooms and add a little black pepper all over, topping it with fresh grated Parmesan cheese .

    Place in oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown or however you like it.

    Let cool a bit before eating, you can add more cheese if you like.

    One recipe suggest using a muffin tin to hold morels upright.

    Bon Appetite

    I'm in otsego county and have been on the hunt with no success! Anyone know of some areas worth looking?? I've read through a lot of this thread so I know to look for ash, elms and old apple orchards. I know the season is starting to dwindle as well, but any information or help would be so appreciated! (And hopefully carried on to next year!)

    I don't think so (that they are "Black Morels")
    Looks like a half-free to me!
    Probably just as good or better.
    Have an expert look at them before eating.

    Yeah, ah...everybody I know who buys them agrees that five dollars a pound plus free shipping is fair.
