May is morel season and to celebrate the return of these miraculous mushrooms, here is a simple morel saute, or fricassee, flavored with ham and herbs. Once morels are out of season (they only last a few short weeks), use other wild mushrooms (Chanterelles and trumpets are good choices)or dried morels. This is delicious over pasta or other grains--or just on its own--or it's a lovely brunch dish served in pastry shells.
