First Chanterelles of the Season!

Here's the initial haul, unadulterated and ready to be cleaned.

Facebook friends will know that we found Chanterelles on our morning walk around Ocean Point, here in East Boothbay.  I just happened to notice them along side the road and then we checked some of our secret spots from previous years and found enough for a lovely mushroom tart, which we had for supper (having gorged ourselves at lunch at a local restaurant with one of our neighbors…shhh!)  I can’t begin to say how satisfying it is to enjoy something foraged from the wild.

 

After cleaning, we had about $20.00 worth, if you could even find them in a store.

Here's the tart.  I used frozen puff pastry and a simple mixture of the mushrooms, Vidalia onions, Swiis and Parmesan cheese, chopped dill and a dash of vermouth.

    They were delicious. Chanterelles have a buttery,nutty flavor; almost citrus-y. They taste quite different than your supermarket button mushrooms.
