To de-worm a morel,
I reccommend cutting them in half and putting them in a bowl of water.
Weight them down with another bowl of water (or anything else that works)
so that they are completely submerged. Put a plate under all of this to
catch the buggy grubby wormy water and stick it in the fridge over night.
this should eliminate 90% of the live worms, but you still get to eat a
few. Works for all species. They can then be dried or cooked, but don't
save them in this waterlogged condition in the fridge for several days.
Note: Those who have nothing to say, say it about spelling-
so let's not go down that road.
Happy hunting to all.
I am hitting up my favorite morel spot near portland on wednesday-
I shall give a report.
