Wild Chanterelle Mushroom –
The Grey Chanterelle mushroom (Cantharellus tubaeformis) also known as Funnel Chanterelle is a small chanterelle with a brown cap . There are smaller, more delicate “chanterelles” that grow throughout the summer and into the fall. They have a similar look to chanterelles with their shape and the blunt edge gill like ridges that run partway down the stem. They seem to be half way between a chanterelle and a black trumpet with their semi hollow funnel-like shape.
Packaging: Kraft bag
Storage: in the fridge up to 1 week
Usage: Try only a little the first time. These have a really nice aroma that is almost identical the the chanterelle. The smell when drying is outstanding. They can be sautéed for truly great flavor but are less interesting when deep fried. They are often best plain or in ways that showcase their subtle flavor. They reconstitute better than a chanterelle and make a nice mushroom powder that is outstanding for flavoring alfredo, and béchamel based sauces. Since the flavor is subtle it should only be mixed in certain ways. A cantharellus/craterellus mix is nice. Chicken, pork or fish, rice, pasta, some vegetables, some cheeses and soups are good choices for recipes using these.
