These mushrooms have a dark grey funnel-shaped cap sometimes with a bright yellow hue. They have yellowy aromatic flesh. They are especially used in mixes.
How to prepare chanterelles
Even though chanterelles picked in the wild are checked when picked and packaged, they still need to be cleaned according to the following instructions:
- Cut 2 to 3 mm off the stalk
- Delicately brush the mushrooms, cap and gills using a small brush to get rid of any thorns or twigs that might be present.
- Cut very large mushrooms vertically
- Only wash if needed (in case of soil) by quickly rinsing them under the tap or delicately wiping them.
Cooking: always sauté them on a high heat and preferably eat them while they are still crunchy.
Sliced and “ready-to-use” mushrooms just need to be cooked.
How to store chanterelles
Chanterellesmay have different characteristics depending on when they are picked or where they come from. That’s why we always endeavour to select the most resistant varieties that grow in optimum climatic conditions: for instance, not too much rain to avoid excess water.
Within this context, the best way to keep them is to remove the plastic film and replace it with a damp cloth and store the mushrooms for 2 to 3 days in the bottom of the fridge at +/-6°C.
