Cantharellus Cibarius (Chanterelles)


Cantharellus cibarius (Latin: cantharellus, “chanterelle“; cibarius, “culinary”) is a species of golden chanterelle mushroom in the genus Cantharellus. It is also known as girolle (or girole). It grows in Europe from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean Basin, mainly in deciduous and coniferous forests.

This very tasty mushroom can be found in small groups in woodland, more often with beech or birch. A delight to come across, but be careful of other foragers as they can be quite territorial over their Chanterelle patches!

Chanterelles are used in many culinary dishes, and can be preserved by either drying or freezing. An oven should not be used when drying it because can result in the mushroom becoming bitter.
