They are growing in West Australia: https://morrie2.wordpress.com/2010/03/20/morchella-the-morel-a-worldwide-favourite/What a shame!
Lots of stuff looks like carp when it comes out of the ground, but taste delicious...They look horrid. What can you compare the taste to??
We were bitching about paying $16.00 a kg for the flat mushrooms, and $11.00 a kg for button at one of the major supermarkets here in Bundy. $120 .00 for a feed of Morel mushies, I don't think so some how...<snipped> If you are lucky enough to find them, you can turn a quick profit if you don't eat them yourself. Depending on the timing, morels can sell for $30-$60 a pound.
I could not find my favorite recipe. It is Morel mushrooms cooked in a thick white sauce which can be used over pasta or rice. My friend in Illinois use to bring me a basket of Morels every year so I would cook for her. We would have my white sauce over pasta, Maine crab cakes and wine. Good times and good food.@ LC: Nice recipes mate, look really tasty...
