Learning for Life: Morel mushrooms

It may be close to the end of this morel mushroom season but if you are still looking some of these treasures, UAF Cooperative Extension Service has two publications on morel mushrooms. These publications are entitled, “Collecting, Preserving & Using Morel Mushrooms” and “Morel Mushrooms: A Guide for Selection and Use.” You will be provided information on field identification, sustainable harvesting methods, storing, freezing and drying processes. There is a list of suggested guidebooks and websites.

Find more information at “The Great Morel: A Tribute to Shroomers,” www.thegreatmorel.com/info.html, or at www.uaf.edu/seagrant/NewsMedia/01ASJ/06.29.01morels.html

These Cooperative Extension Service publications and others are available for free in our office or downloadable at www.uaf.edu/ces.
