    It was a awesome year for them! I stocked a bush in the freezer.

    With the warm spell last week while moose hunting we had a small feed of Winter Chanterelles. It was nice since we didn't see any moose.

    Would chicken of the woods be done for the season?

    You can try them on their own:
    Chop them up into strips, lightly brown some garlic in olive oil and then add the shrooms. Fry them until they start to soften, add a splash of white wine or brandy or whatever and some chopped parsley. Once the wine has reduced they are ready to eat or if you like add some cream and bring it to a simmer again.

    This is the first year I found a crop of black trumpets, very tasty!

    Winter Chanterelles eh? are they a different species or just chanterelles that grow late?
    Also, Im pretty cure chicken of the woods will grow as late as the temperature and humidity conditions permit. I can at least attest to the batch I found which were plentiful and still very tender.

    Thanks for the advice Rugger! Sounds like your method would be a great brass tacks way of preparing these little beauties. Also, good job on the black trumpets. Do you do your foraging near Toronto are or do you have a honey hole somewhere else?

    Cheers

    I think they are regular chanterelles found late in the year. Personally I haven't fond any since the fourth week of September.

    I found the patch of black trumpets on the side of my dad's driveway in the Parry sound area, I walked over them a couple of times heading into and out of my xbow stand before I clued into them lol.

    We commonly find trumpet chanterelles well into Oct provided the conditions are right. We also find a fair number of chicken of the woods but for the most part they are July to Sept for us.

    That recipe is a standard and works well for all wild mushrooms. Especially for large batches of trumpet chanterelles we will do them up like that (minus the cream) and freeze them in mason jars to add to pasta sauces, rice, frittata, what ever.

    When I do an image search on winter chanterelle I get what I refer to as a trumpet chanterelle. Makes sense, they're the ones we find the latest.

    Yup that is it - according to wikipedia it is also known as Yellowfoot, winter mushroom, or Funnel Chanterelle. I guess it is a regional thing like walleye and pickerel.

    Well, I was fortunate enough to partake in that bunch of Chanterelle that Muskyhunter found last week and they were awsome in an omelet.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.
