How To Create A Morel Mushroom Habitat and Plant Morel Spawn
Morel mushrooms are a rare delicacy. Like truffles, they have their own unique flavor that is nothing like the usual mushrooms that can be grown in cave-like "farms". They only grow in nature, and have peculiar habits. I've never lived where they grew naturally, but I've heard tales about people passing knowledge of their secret morel gathering place down through the family. They are expensive, and I have only tasted them once, when a restaurant used a small dried one to flavor a sauce for pork chops.
Who knew? Someone has a strain of Morel mushroom spoor that can be semi cultivated, and now we can each try our hand at developing a morel plot of our own. Here is my video showing how I dug my habitat for them. The link to the company that I bought them from is on the video comment. :-)
