Carly advises anyone wanting to sell
their mushrooms to cut the stalk to only an inch from the
top's base before taking them in. There are buyers in both
Topley and Hazelton which can be contacted usually through
the local Chamber of Commerce or coffee shops.
Due to all the previous
fires in the Province, the morel is plentiful for awhile
and so the prices paid for morels is not as high as it
used to be. But the price will come back up one of these
I say, "Why sell them when they taste so good?" The
dried morels are delicious sprinkled into gravies, stews
and soups. Or they can be reconstituted for recipes like
mushroom soup. Seems that every person I talked to says
the best way to eat a morel is to cut it in half horizontally.
Dip each half in well beaten egg and then roll in your
coating (crushed crackers, bread crumbs, cornmeal) and
fry in lots of butter over medium high heat.
