Tastes of Spring: Morels

One of spring's finest offerings is the morel mushroom, with its nutty, meaty flavor and wonderfully whimsical appearance. The nooks and crannies hide lots of grit, so be sure to submerge the mushrooms in cold water, swish vigorously, and gently pat dry before you cook and eat them. Sauté in a bit of butter or oil, and pair with scrambled eggs, pasta tosses, or pizza.
