Mushroom hunting is very popular in most of Europe and it’s a fun way to get out into the great outdoors. Bring a basket and a knife and experience the thrill of gathering your own food – cutting off the root of the mushroom before putting it into the basket will save you some time when preparing your meal.
Especially chanterelles have a magical appeal for most foodies and they are one of the most recognized and harvested groups of edible mushrooms. Chanterelles are in season late summer and early fall – they have excellent conditions after rainy weather and are typically found with either conifers or hardwood trees.
Many mushroom enthusiasts just like chanterelles sautéed in butter, with a pinch of salt, a clove of fresh crushed garlic and some whipping cream. If you feel like trying something new we recommend this recipe for pickled mushrooms and chanterelles with a slice of brie on toasted bread.
