This time a year, the forests here in Sweden (at least from middle to south Sweden) are full of gold. That is; chanterelles!
This amazing, buttery mushroom is a great side dish to meat, or great in a pie or sauce. You can also freeze or conserve it for future use. Drying this mushroom makes it quite chewy.
It contains a bit of vitamin D. 1-5 chanterelles is enough to cover the daily ration!
Back in the old days, chanterelles were used to promote a healthy immune system, lower cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. Today though, it’s mostly used in cooking because it’s so darn good! 😆
The most simple (and in my opinion most delicious) way of cooking chanterelles, is to fry them in butter or ghee, add finely chopped spring onion (or red onion), black pepper and salt. You can also add cream if you feel like it, but it’s not necessary.
I’d like to share a video I made 3 years ago. My mom in the forests from my childhood, looking for chanterelles and also cleaning and cooking them.<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/79020004″>Gold in the Forest</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/tinefis”>Tinefis</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
Have a great day everyone!
