August in Newfoundland. Prime time for mushrooms.
This week's post is about wild mushrooms, and particularly one delightful variety: the chanterelle. Yes, that peachy little trumpet that sells for $60/pound* at the grocery store grows all over this province - for free! And you can find it yourself... if you know where to look. And once you bring it into your kitchen? Well, that's where the magic begins.
Ready? I'm going to share some fantastic ideas for meals and I'll equip you with the know-how to forage your own chanterelles. Read more and click on the photos to find recipes.
