This particular variety, Morchella semilibera is rated by Orson K. Miller Jr. in “Mushrooms of North America” as: Edible!, Choice!, and Common!, although a whole lot of people walk past them everyday and don’t know they are hiding in the Cottonwoods! How do you cook and eat them? See Below:
Just pick, dice, throw in the frying pan with butter and cook off the majority of water leaving all the sautéed bits and then salt and pepper to taste, thicken with a bit of flour or corn starch. Now add these to the chicken stock off your broiled hen and eat with a bit of mashed potato! Wow! Yumm! Yumm!
