      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Morels, What is your favorite way to cook them?

Recommended Posts

Fave of all time is to sautee them fresh in unsalted butter, add cooking wine and simmer for sauce, then pour sauce over grilled lake trout.

MMMMMMMM. gringrin

I like to saute them in butter, or do the egg wash cracker crumb thing, and mix the morels up in a pot of wild rice. Soooooooo Good! The leaves are finally starting to bud up this way, it won't be long.

asleson, I have to ditto archerystud, Just saute them in butter (but DON'T burn 'em) and serve with your favorite whatever! I've been out about 11 times and have a bunch drying now. It's just hard to decide which way to make with them! My favorite is to TOTALLY dry them, grind them and serve them on top of scrambled eggs. I once had a hard time getting up for breakfast...but that did the trick!! Save'em, dry'em and eat'em when nobody else has'em, During the fall and winter...they're PRIMO!!! If you hunt rabbits...They are a PERFECT match to roast rabbit meat!! Phred52

I have found the butter and garlic my fave, I like to mix in some of the other spring bounties out their like Asparagus, Ramps & Fiddlehead Ferns when I cook them. It adds to the earthy flavors.

Cut them in half and put them on a screen or string them up with a needle and some fishing line. I usually put a fan on them at a low setting. They will be dry in a couple of days and they will keep for years.

Thanks Nate. Once they are dry how do you store them? zip lock, jar and I assume you don't want to freeze them. Been doing real good the last couple days 5-6 lbs. mix of grays and yellows

Looking for a morel soup recipe. A little help? Wild rice maybe? Have some leftovers that are shot for taste but still have good texture...

Fried in butter with fresh venison backstraps and onions is amazing.

Also with ruffed grouse. I brown the grouse breasts, then put in the crockpot with a can or two of cream of mushroom soup for a few hours. About 2 hours before it's time to eat, I add in the morels.

    • Mine lasted 5 years, then broke on the lake, but I got two new ones the week before. Lucked out I guess.
    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
