Here is what I made with these outstanding chanterelles. Vodka, Caraway Seed, Red Hot Pepper, and Lemon that in three weeks turns into a sipping drink.. I might have one shot of this a year for Christmas...By the way you take a cheese cloth and remove all the solid from your new sipping vodka. Hence your vodka now takes on the flavor of all the ingredients I mentioned above.

Do you think this would work with dried chanterelles's? And do you have a "recipe" or just go by looks?

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 lemon
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..

I have seen Chanterelles and Oyster mushrooms for sale fresh in Wegmans. If you can't find them in the woods...Check Wegmans shroom area out in Late Spring and Summer for their Chanterelles... They seem to have Oyster mushrooms all the time.. qagain you want Chanterelles in the formula because they have a apricot smell..

I purchased 4 chanterelles at Wegmans to finalize some liquid freshment I wanted to make better then it was... Don't even bother making this drink out of the Wegmans shrooms.. There was much debry at the bottom of the mason jar.. I don't even want to drink this new recipe after I screen it..Cheescloth it.. it's going in the composter the booze and all.. The stuff in the picture however was made from Pa Chanterelles and that's a keeper.. I still have plenty of that stored for when I just want to try something I made from the wild...
