Re: The Golden Chaneterelle
My 1 Brother who lives in Oregon, was home this weekend for his Son's Wedding....
We got to talking about Mushrooms and he mentioned he picked a good 200 pounds of Chaneterelles out in Oregon this spring...
He was telling us that he dried alot of them and has them in mason jars to use later....he went on to tell us how they cook them in Oregon...
They take a pan and put salt in the bottom of the pan, heat it up hot and throw in the Chaneterelles and start tossing them till all the water comes out of them, after the water comes out, they pour the water off and start adding meat and veggies to the pan and other spices and cook it...he said if any of us get some Chaneterelles to try it that way and we would like it better then tossing everything together and coming out with a major amount of liquid in it that it is almost like soup!
He was also telling us about all the other wild mushrooms they have out there and how a majority of them, there is a limit on how many you can gather and some mushrooms, you need a Permit/License to gather them for there is not many left due to many people gatheirng them in the past!
He said Chaneterelles are 1 of the over looked mushrooms in his area of Oregon and they out number the other mushrooms!
