Morel Mushroom

Morchella esculenta


Morchella mushroom


Wooded area at edge of my parents home.


Just happened upon them and decided to snap a few photos. says they can be eaten but that they must be cooked first. Not an expert so I think I'll keep getting my mushrooms on a pizza and leave the wild ones alone.
