Chanterelle Mushrooms

These gorgeous and delicious mushrooms have popped up on my property again this year. I will be bringing some to the market on Saturday and want to let y'all know what they are before you get there. 

They are considered an "excellent edible mushroom" and I couldn't agree more. We have been picking and enjoying them for a few years now.  

The chanterelle is very easy to identify.  The false chanterelle and jack-o-lantern may be confused with a chanterelle because of their orange color, but both of these species have true gills. They also have a more traditional mushroom cap shape instead of the vase shape of the chanterelle.

Chanterelle noodle stir fry is one of my favorite easy dinners. Check out the recipe here.
