Dried Morel mushrooms widely range in size, depending on growing conditions, and are mainly comprised of dehydrated caps that have an oblong to cone-shaped appearance. The cap has a pitted, wrinkled, and textured honeycomb-like surface and is found in buff, light brown, grey, to dark brown, almost black hues. The dried caps are also fragile, rough, and brittle, crumbling under slight pressure. Inside the cap, there is a hollow cavity running the length of the mushroom. Dried Morel mushrooms must be rehydrated before consumption, developing a soft, slightly spongy consistency. When utilized in culinary preparations, Dried Morel mushrooms contribute a rich combination of earthy, nutty, woodsy, and umami-filled flavors.
