Washing chanterelles

Washing chanterelles

Heavy rains and warm weather means it's chanterelle season! I usually don't wash mushrooms, but these were too dirty to merely brush off. Luckily, half an hour in the food dehydrator took the water back out and they were delicious sauteed in butter and thyme.

Warning: If you gorge on bucketloads of wild chanterelles, your skin will start to smell like peaches.
