Chanterelle mushroom

An apricot-coloured mushroom that has a very distinctive frilly trumpet shape. Chanterelles have a slightly rubbery texture with a subtle fruity flavour.

How to Use

Chanterelles are served cooked. Add to mixed mushroom sauces, risottos or pasta dishes. Include in soups, casseroles and stir-fries.

How to Prepare

Chanterelles need to be cleaned carefully as dirt gets stuck under the gills, so they need to be rinsed under running water and then dried on kitchen paper.

How to Cook

Chanterelles are best sautéed. Heat a little butter in a frying pan and gently cook the mushrooms for 5-7 minutes or until just cooked but still tender.

How to Store

Keep in a paper bag in the fridge for up to 3 days. Do not store them in a plastic bag because they will sweat and quickly spoil.
