I got a telephone call the other day from my mum saying “We’ve got Morels in the garden”

So naturally I dropped what I was doing and ran round to have a look and sure enough, there were Morels!

You can tell a morel by the distinctive honeycomb like texture on the outside – but also because it has a hollow inside.  The cap is also completely connected to the stem – false morels cap grows down the stem (never connecting) and can have a fleshy inside.  If you’re not sure, don’t eat it – though they’re very rare and expensive – the black version my parents found is especially expensive!
