the chanterelle hunt


over the weekend dlb and I headed out into the forest, knives in hand, on a hunt for prized Chanterelle mushrooms.  after a few hours of tromping over trees and breaking twigs with every step, we stumbled upon the patch of all patches and quickly filled up our grocery bag with yummy mushrooms.  we had plans on chopping, sauteing, and freezing these babies, but mushrooms for every meal sounded like a better plan.  we’ve had sauteed Chanterelles with thyme on wheat crackers, Chanterelle and cheese scrambled eggs, and last night, the most incredibly delicious Wild-Mushroom Bread Pudding.

and we’ve still got half the bag to go.  tonight I’m thinking Mushroom Soup with Hazelnut Gremolata.

    I’ve tried that soup recipe and it was delicious. I wish we had chanterelles in Kentucky. Our mushroom hunt happens in the early spring, with wild morels.
