For those looking for a less potent chanterelle flavour, Winter Chanterelles - also known as Trumpet Chanterelles - provide a more subtle yet still distinctive flavour. Winter chanterelles have a delicate, peppery, smokey taste with hints of the fruitness characteristic of regular chanterelles. These versatile mushrooms pair well with meats, including wild game, and can be incorporated into rustic stews, soups, sauces, and souffles to add a unique and complex flavour.
How to Use
Dried mushrooms can be reconstituted by placing them in any kind of warm liquid (water, broth, wine, cream, etc.) for 15 - 20 minutes. Place mushrooms in small bowl and just cover with liquid. They can then be used in any application that calls for fresh mushrooms. Make sure to save the rehydration liquid for using in recipes. Try our winter chantrelles as a base for soups and sauces, combine with eggs in a scramble or omelette, incorporate into a risotto, or toss with pasta.
