Cooking Features

Chanterelles belong to the first category of mushrooms. This means that they are completely edible and have excellent taste. Such gifts of the forest do not require complex and long preparation. Cooking salads from chanterelles does not take much time and does not require high culinary skill, but knowledge of some moments will not be superfluous, especially for a chef rarely engaged in the preparation of dishes from forest mushrooms.

  • Young chanterelles, having a small size, are the most delicious. For salad, they are enough to fry. If you want them to brown, fry them over medium heat without a lid. If you want the chanterelles to become softer and more tender, you need to fry them over low heat until the juice released from them has evaporated. Large chanterelles, especially those gathered in hot, dry weather or grown near coniferous trees, can slightly be bitter. Before frying it is advisable to soak them for 8-10 hours in cool water, changing it periodically, or boil it for 15-20 minutes.
  • It is not necessary to collect chanterelles in the area of ​​highways or industrial facilities. Fungi absorb toxic substances, which can be harmful and even poisonous. Buying mushrooms from hands, you cannot be sure of their safety, therefore chanterelles should be used for the salad, collected by yourself or purchased in a supermarket.
  • Frozen chanterelles before cooking can not defrost.
  • It is recommended to cool products that have been heat-treated before adding to the salad. When you combine hot foods with cold snacks, they quickly turn sour. The exception is warm salads, which are served immediately after cooking.
  • Salads with chanterelles can be plain or flaky. Puff salads are collected a few hours before serving to the table, so that the ingredients have time to soak in the sauce, and stored in the refrigerator. Regular salads are filled shortly before serving to the table, so that they remain fresh longer.

Salads with chanterelles can be served for lunch or dinner as a cold snack or instead of a main dish. These dishes are not ashamed to put on the holiday table.
