Are there any poisonous moral look alikes?
    #14446050 - 05/13/11 05:21 PM (4 years, 17 days ago)

Out at my cabin we sometimes find patches of delicious morel mushrooms (moral?) you know the ones that look like brown brains with a pointy top?

my question is, are there any poisonous look alikes, or are they safe to eat?

Thanks!

The easiest way to check is to cut them in half lengthwise. This is also a good idea to get insects and slugs out of them.

True morels will be hollow, without any pith inside. Their cap will be attached all the way from top to bottom.

False morels are often toxic and will usually have the inside filled with a fibrous pith. Their caps will be attached only at the top, like most mushrooms.

Happy mushrooming!

I'm sure there is a moral to this story!

Thanks for the help!

Only I am not totally sure what this means: "Their cap will be attached all the way from top to bottom"

Does this mean...

what does this mean? I can't visualize it.

:confused:
