    It's late in the season.

    First the Blacks come out, then the Browns and Whites, now mostly all that are out are the Whites.

    We only have a couple of weeks left in the season.

    You're welcome hun.

    They taste nice if you butter them and fry them in a pan, but I like to dip em in batter and deep fry them in peanut oil.

    Oh, wash them off in some water and save the water. Go somewhere out in the woods that looks like a nice spot and pour the water all over. You'll get Morels in a couple of weeks or next season.

    After every rain till the end of the season. Many of them are probably still hidden. You could go back there tomorrow and find several more.

    You can soak em in saltwater after you rinsed them in fresh water. The saltwater is to kill any bugs that might be on them and it gives em a nice flavor.

    Oh, there are several ways to store them. They dry out real easy so a sealed plastic container in the fridge is the best if you want to cook them in the next week or two or you can freeze them in sealed plastic bags. You can also dry them and they will retain their flavor for 6 months.
