Chanterelle mushrooms are one of the most sought-after wild mushrooms harvested in North America. Their aroma is both earthy and fruity, often described as apricot-like, and they have an earthy flavor. Their fragrant aroma, fine flavor, and pleasing texture make them one of the most versatile of all mushrooms and have earned them a well-deserved place in kitchens around the world. Chanterelle mushrooms are rich in protein, fiber, vitamin C, calcium, and vitamin D. They also contain powerful immune-enhancing properties. The B vitamins found abundantly in mushrooms help the immune system, support nerve, and heart health, and help break down blood sugars in the body amongst other things.
Chanterelles are very delicate, with a fruity and peppery nutlike flavor.
Their delicate flavor also complements many seafood dishes.
