The ancient Romans considered morels a delicacy and served them at the table to the emperor. These are the first spring mushrooms. In Las Vegas restaurants, they appear in April and are available until the end of June.

It has a conical, elongated, pointed dark brown hat with ribs and regular, almost rectangular, cells on its surface. Despite all the taste advantages, morels are considered conventionally edible mushrooms. Before cooking culinary delicacies from them, it is necessary to cook them for 15-20 minutes, drain the liquid, and wash the mushrooms with cold water.

Upper Kyle Canyon, particularly Mt. Charleston is famous for abundant harvests. However, for the sake of safety, better ask for a plate of mushrooms in local restaurants. In Las Vegas restaurants, morels are usually served with pasta and risottos. Some prefer to fry morels on a grill.
