Chanterelle Season

Yesterday saw the season’s first mushroom expedition. A bit early for real diversity, with only four edible species collected, but on the other hand we found quite a lot of chanterelles.

  • Chanterelle, Kantarell, Cantharellus cibarius
  • Birch bolete, Björksopp, Leccinum scabrum
  • Orange Birch Bolete, Tegelsopp, Leccinum versepelle
  • Red russula, Tegelkremla, Russula decolorans

As a Swedish journalist once wrote, paraphrasing the Scarlet Pimpernel:

They find him here
They find him there
They say they find him everywhere
Is he in Heaven or is he in Hell?
That damned elusive Chanterelle

  1. How about a gallery of the four species? If “real” chanterelles are the ones in the background, then I just had my first ones a few days ago. Delicious when fried in the pan with allspice (pimenta dioica), salt and butter.
