Yield: Yields 3 cups dried morels.
To keep fresh morels for a day or two before drying, put them in a loosely closed paper bag in the refrigerator. This recipe can be easily adapted to work with as many fresh morels as you have; the drying time will be the same.
Set the oven to the lowest temperature you can and leave the door partially open. (If your oven cannot be set below 200°F, set it to warm. If it has a convection feature, use it to keep the air circulating.) Try to keep the oven temperature below 140°F so you don’t cook the mushrooms instead of drying them. Dry the morels until they’re brittle and easily broken, 8 to 10 hours depending on their size.
Note: You can also use a food dehydrator to dry fresh morels. Put the cleaned morels in the dehydrator and set it to 110°F for 8 to 10 hours.
