Here are a couple of tips for anyone not already aware of them: Never wash your morels in saltwater unless you plan on eating them all within a day or two. They will last 2-3 weeks in the fridge if you simply rinse AND DRAIN them a few times in clean water. And make sure they stay DRAINED, and store in the fridge in a sealed container. Drain off any water that accumulates in the bottom of the bowl daily, and after a couple of days you can simply put a paper towel in the bottom to absorb any excess moisture. Also for those who want to try storing some in the freezer, what has worked best for me is to partially fry them, maybe half-way, drain the oil off, and then freeze them on aluminum foil, not touching each other. After they are frozen, dump them in a freezer bag and they will keep 6 mos or so. When you need to sample a few, deep frying works best. Get the oil hot, then dump them in a few at a time just like french fries. Just be careful not to overcook them at this point. A couple of minutes is just right unless you dumped in too many and cooled the oil off. I posted this elsewhere, but thought it might be useful here also.
