Chanterelles are a dense and meaty, edible, wild mushrooms ranging in color from orange to gold. They have wavy, fleshy caps with ruffled false gills that flare upward along the stem forming an abstract tulip. Their flavor is nutty, with an aroma of apricots or peaches. Entirely edible, the stem is chewier and more fibrous than the cap. The golden color which makes this mushroom distinct, may be due to the levels of carotenoid pigments present, which are similar to those that color carrots.
Chanterelle mushrooms are found year-round, with a peak season in the fall.
Cantharellus cibarius, commonly known as the Chanterelle or Golden Chanterelle, is classified as a fungus. Chanterelles do not discriminate in their symbiotic "plant relationships". Their mycelial threads can be found intertwined with the roots of hardwood trees, conifers, shrubs and bushes. They specifically thrive on old, deep, leaf "litter".
Chanterelle mushrooms contain high amounts of ergocalciferol, more commonly referred to as vitamin D2, which helps the body absorb calcium. These meaty mushrooms also contain significant amounts of protein, vitamin A, potassium, iron, chromium and eight essential amino acids. The high levels of vitamin D2 are suspected of being responsible for the lack of interest from insects, slugs and other wildlife.
Wild mushrooms, such as the Chanterelle, are generally meatier and stronger in flavor than cultivated mushrooms. Chanterelle mushrooms should be kept very dry and refrigerated, and used within a week. Pair with pasta, butter or cream sauces, other wild mushrooms, cured meats and cow's milk cheese, onions and garlic. May be served sauteed or roasted in vegetable side dishes, or pickled. Chanterelles are very sponge-like, so be careful not to waterlog them as it will be difficult to allow their best attributes to shine if they become too wet.
The name Chanterelle comes from the Greek word “kantharos,” for vase. In Russia, Chanterelles are called “lisichki”, or ‘little fox’. They are highly prized in Germany, where more than 2,000 tons of the mushrooms called “pfifferlinge” are received in barrels of brine. The British Columbia Thompson First Nation people called the golden Chanterelle mushrooms “little fish gills” and they were often eaten alongside salmon or dried and used later in soups and stews. In 1999, the Pacific Golden Chanterelle (C. formosus) was named the state mushroom of Oregon.
Chanterelles thrive in forested areas of the United States, specifically along the West Coast, Canada, and in temperate forests around the world. In the Pacific Northwest, it fruits in the summer underneath conifers. The Chanterelle has resisted attempts to cultivate it and can only be found in the wild.
