I freeze them all the time. You can store them as long as you want frozen.

I have never tried drying them, but some people say thats the ticket. I always sautee mine and vaccum seal them. They come out tasting fresh after as long as a year. Thats as long as they've lasted.

I dry mine.


I dry until they are crisp and then put in a "Lock and Lock" container. They keep as long as they last.

Am going to look into freeze-drying next year...

I froze some fresh this year & have eaten some of them since. Not bad, but the texture is definitely softer than fresh ones. I have eaten dehydrated ones too, and if I could choose, I'd probably dehydrate them. Don't get me wrong though, the frozen ones are still tasty!

i strung my find on a string to dry until they are hard and then put them in a mason jar. we threw a handfull of dried morels in with a pot roast for dinner and they came out tender and delicious, couldn't tell they were dried !

I dry my Morels by placing about 5 each in a closed up lunch paper bag and set it on the top of your frig for oh about three days.. They dry inside bag. I just keep the now dried Morel's in a plastic bag in the frig..Remember I said 5 each in each bag now... You don't wawnt to try to dry 20 in one lunch bag...Thats the secret the space in the brown paper bag..
