      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.
