- Kosher salt
- 1 lb. fresh morels (about 12 cups)
Put the morels in a large bowl with enough cold water to cover. Add a pinch of salt and soak for 2 to 3 minutes, gently stirring the morels with your fingers to loosen any grit. Drain well. If the morels are large—more than 2-1/2 inches long—halve them lengthwise.
