The hunt for the delectable morel mushroom is in full swing. For many individuals, hiking and searching for morels is a favored spring time hobby. The morel mushroom is often referred to as one of the most desired mushrooms in the world, this is due to the fact that they are required to be found in the wild; morel mushrooms are not farmed. Since morels are found naturally, you will want to ensure they are properly washed and any worms or bugs that may have made it their home are removed. Fresh morels can be kept in your refrigerator for about a week. Like most other edible mushrooms, a morel mushroom is nutrient packed. In 1 cup of morel mushrooms you will be nourished with 20 calories, 3.4 g carbohydrates, 1.8 g fiber, and 2.1 g protein. Additionally, there is a variety of different vitamins and minerals found in the delicious fungi including: Iron, Copper, Manganese, Phosphorus, Zinc, Vitamin D, Folate, Niacin, Riboflavin, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Selenium, Thiamine, Vitamins E and B6.
