Chanterelles in the woods

Today while walking the dogs, Meg and I found a small cluster of Chanterelles. These are considered as edible mushrooms in fact rated delicious! We'll have them with dinner tomorrow. If you don't hear from me again they were Jack O lanterns and not Chanterelles.

Chanterelle cibarius these are one of the most famous edible mushrooms in the world. And to find them right here in paradise. We have also found a few Morels in the spring and Oyster Mushrooms can be found in large numbers on rotting tulip poplars.

They have a slight smell of apricots! Your looking at our harvest below.

They are most pretty and I hope taste great for you. And I know you are just kidding on the type but please make sure!

I don't think I've ever seen Chanterelles. Always makes me think of the character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer who came up with the name Chanterelle for herself. lol

Brave man, I trust you are as well schooled in mushrooms as you are in butterflies and dragonflies.

Town Mouse said...

Enjoy! They look like chantrelles to me, and I went mushroom hunting a lot as a kid. And if worst comes to worst, there's actually nothing very poisonous that looks like a chantrelle. So, no worries.

(I like them sauteed in butter with a little thyme).

I generally don't like the look of mushrooms because I've seen ugly ones most of the times in my aunt's garden, but this one looks very pretty.
Also to me, the taste of the mushroom isn't mouth-watering wither. How does this one taste? Just the normal mushroom taste?

Tina and Janet,
When I had back surgery many years ago I got a good mushroom book and wandered the woods while I recovered finding and IDing mushrooms.

Town Mouse,
We'll find out how good tonight, thyme I'll try that.

Chandramouli,
The store mushrooms are kind of bland, these should have lots of flavor and these would be about 8-10 times more expensive than the standard store mushrooms.

They taste great with cream sauce and on toast. Enjoy.....

I love mushrooms......I wish I had the confidence to know the difference between them and toadstools.
Living in a damp area and bordering woods I get a lot of fungi in the garden....many I am sure would be delicious, but I am not going there....

I do hope that yours were yummy.....
