Naturally Speaking: False morels


One way to identify false morels is to cut the mushroom lengthwise and look at it. Morels are hollow the whole way through, including through the stem, according to thegreatmorel.com. If the stem or meat are solid, there’s a good chance the mushroom is not a morel and should not be consumed, at least not until you’ve confirmed it’s another fungi safe for humans to eat.

While waiting for morels to appear under a dead elm, live white oak or nearly dead apple tree, take time to look for other fungi providing clues suggesting the time is near.

But don’t be in a hurry to bite into anything to looks a bit morelish. Some are worthless, others quite poisonous.
