Friday, August 28, 2015 | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

These trumpet-shaped fleshy mushrooms, also known as "golden chanterelle" and "egg mushroom," are nutty, with an aroma of apricots or peaches. The distinctively flavoured chanterelle mushrooms contain high amounts of vitamin D2, significant amounts of protein and iron. They should be kept dry and refrigerated, and used within a week.
