Q.

Should I clean morels before storing them? Do I need to eat them right away?

A.

Because it’s easy for moisture to get trapped or absorbed in morels while washing them, for best shelf life we don’t recommend cleaning until just before you’re ready to cook them.

Of course, your fresh morels will have the best flavor and texture if you consume them immediately after arrival, but if carefully stored according to the instructions in How To Store Fresh Mushrooms they can last from three days to over a week depending on your fridge, ambient humidity, and other factors.  Just keep an eye on them and consume them before they become soggy or dry out.
