Chanterelle Mushrooms


One nice thing to do in Finland is to go out and pick some fresh mushrooms. Chanterelles is one of many mushroom species in Finland It is yellowish to brownish in colour and taste great because the tenderness and meaty structure.

Let see some information about this mushroom from Wikipedia.

It is orange or yellow, meaty and funnel-shaped. On the lower surface, underneath the smooth cap, it has gill-like ridges that run almost all the way down its stipe, which tapers down seamlessly from the cap. It has a fruity smell, reminiscent of apricots and a mildly peppery taste (hence its German name, Pfifferling) and is considered an excellent food mushroom. Up to 6.7% of their tissues is vitamin С; as for carotene, they can be as much as 23.1 %, surpassing all known mushrooms.

Though some people like to have some nice time foraging for this mushroom in the bush, we are just buying it at the city center. After you clean it, stir fry until no more juices and add some eggs along with a pint of salt and white pepper. Enjoy!
