Carla's notes for this recipe:
I wait for the season each year. Nothing like them. When they're gone they're gone- till the next year. The anticipation is as good as the mushrooms!
Make it Your Way...

Heat cooking oil in skillet over medium heat until pinch of flour sizzles.

Make sure morels are clean and split in half lengthwise.

Reserve in cold water.
Mix cornmeal, sugar, salt and pepper together in large bowl.

Carefully bread each mushroom half (like breading chicken)
Fry in small batches. About 6 mushrooms per serving. Can be held on tray in warm oven until all are fried.

I've been drooling over your picture. I love the thrill of the hunt as much as I do the mushrooms.

They are exceptionally early here. We usually don't see them until the 3rd week of April!
