Morel is an edible wild mushroom. It has irregular indentations, which give it a spongy or honeycombed appearance. It has a cone-shape cap, which ranges in size from 2 to 4 inches high and a hollow stem. Its color ranges from a tan to an extremely dark brown. It has a smoky, nutty flavor. Generally, the darker the mushroom, the stronger the flavor. Dried morels and imported canned morels can be found in gourmet markets year-round. Fresh morels can be purchased throughout the year and fresh are available during the spring.
