Uses for Morel Mushrooms Morels are always destined for the frying pan or as an addition to many dishes. Morel mushrooms should never be eaten raw. Morels pair beautifully with light cream and wine sauces. They are superb with egg and pasta dishes. Be sure you don't over season any dish you are preparing with morels. The flavors of the mushroom are assertive enough to stand on their own. Larger morels are also perfect for stuffing after you reconstitute them. Reconstitute mushrooms in white or red wine, soup stock, water, consomm or milk. Use just like fresh mushrooms. Strain the soaking liquid through a coffee filter or a fine strainer. Never discard the reconstituting liquid since it is filled with morel flavor. Use in your dish or freeze in ice trays and then transfer the cubes to a plastic freezer bag. Long after the mushrooms have been used, the liquid will still be there for using in dishes. Store dried mushrooms in an airtight container or freeze up to one year.
