Store wild mushrooms in your refrigerator wrapped in a paper bag. For long term storage & preservation ideas, read How to Freeze, Can & Dehydrate Fresh Mushrooms
Shelf Life: Up to ten days fresh. A year or longer dried. Several months frozen.
Morels are hollow, so it's important to clean them before use (how to clean mushrooms). However,
don't do this until you're ready to cook them, otherwise the moisture
will promote mold.
Morels should never be consumed raw. They are perfect for sauces and stews, and particularly delicious in dishes with butter, sweet peppers, marsala wine, marjoram, leeks or wild ramps, cream, eggs, garlic, thyme or caraway seeds. Meats that pair well with morels include bacon, chicken (particularly older, richer flavored heritage chickens), lamb, Serrano ham, pork and veal sweetbreads.
Some chefs stuff morel’s natural cavities with various fillings before cooking them. Other morel fans swear by deep frying them in oil or pan frying them in butter, often breaded with cracker meal.
