Re: Trumpet Chanterelles another choice chanterelle
No it will not work with dried ones... However you can use golden Chanterelle, Cinnabars, and or Back Trumpets aka Horn of Plenty, Winter Chanterelle and of course in my case Trumpet Chanterelles.....there is a recipe this is what you use: yu might be able to get Chanterelles at WEGMANS if you have one in your area... Not sure when they start selling them in their mushroom area..
Spiced Mushrooms in Alcohol.
3 oz /1cup Chanterelles. you can mix with some Oyster mushrooms too and combine if you have them also..Chanterelle are the important one..
1 tsp caraway seeds
1 red chili
1 1/2 cups of Vodka.
Get a good vodka.. Polish one is good but I have used Gilberts..
place the mushrooms, caraway seeds, cut up lemon and chili in a clean preserving jar or bottle.
Pour in vodka and leave for 2-3 weeks. Until mushrooms no longer float..
I don't chill mine but you can chill thoroughly and serve as an aperitif.
Put the now finished product through cheese cloth to strain... I compost the ingredients..
Pour your now finished drink into what ever you want to store it in.. the original Vodka bottle or get yourself a hip flask. I keep mine in the original bottle... You might want to get your vodka in a pint bottle or make a batch of it if you get a 5th or quart etc..
I have never put oyster mushrooms in mine but the recipe does call for it... This recipe is good if you just get a few Chanterelles. I wil try it next time with some oyster mushrooms in it too..
