2 oz.
1 ea.
6 sprigs
1 oz.
4 ea.

English Peas - shucked & blanched
water
salt

morels - washed
shallot - peeled and finely chopped

garlic cloves - peeled
butter - diced & separated into 1/4 portions

Preparation:
For English Peas:  In a medium pot, bring 3 cups of water and ½ cup of salt to a rolling boil. Shuck peas from pod and submerge in ice water for 5 seconds. Remove from ice water and submerge in boiling salted water for 15 seconds or until they have been cooked to your desired tenderness. Remove from the boiling water and submerge back into the ice water to stop the cooking process. Reserve.

For Morels:  Wash morels. Once cleaned, pat completely dry with paper towels. In a large nonstick sauté pan, heat olive oil to a white smoke. Add your thyme sprigs and garlic cloves to infuse the oil. Once garlic cloves are golden brown and the thyme has stopped “popping”, remove from oil and return pan to the heat. Add Morels in one even layer. Sauté for 2-3 minutes making sure to stir continuously to prevent burning. Remove from heat and add finely chopped shallots and ¼ lb. diced whole butter. Allow butter to melt and shallots to sweat. Season mushrooms with salt and black pepper to taste. Reserve.

For Leeks:  Cut the tops off and small dice (1/4”) the bottom of the leeks. Submerge in water to remove any sand. In a medium pot begin to melt ¼ lb. butter over medium-low heat. Add diced leeks and cook slowly for 8-10 minutes or until the leeks are tender and translucent. Strain the butter and reserve the leeks for later use.
