Chanterelle

  1. During our last grouse hunt of the season I came across a bunch of mushrooms that appeared to be chanterelle. I was given chanterelles a few years ago, however, it was like September/October, and I've never harvested them before.
    Can anyone identify these?
     
  2. Looks right to me
     
  3. All the pictures and descriptions I've found seem to match. All the negatives to look for are not present...what worries me is the time of year. Most people harvest them in September, however end of December? There is a variety called the "Winter Chanterelle", but the description for "golden" seems spot on.
     
  4. I've picked a shit ton of chantrelles and those look spot on to me. I have found them into December if it's been mild enough for them not to freeze. It does seem a bit odd to find them this late, but they could have been hanging out in a spot that tends to be a bit warmer than other areas. Enjoy! Let us know how you cooked em up.
     
  5. Put those puppies on your steak!!!
