Chanterelles should be cooked only fresh. Ideally, start cooking immediately after picking or buying freshly harvested mushrooms. And if they lie down for at least a day, they will lose their original tenderness.
  • Another possible problem is bitterness. It may be due to various reasons, but to eliminate it, you can soak chanterelles in cold water for several hours. If you plan to extinguish them in sour cream or cream, then you can use milk for soaking, it will eliminate the unpleasant taste and make the texture more tender.
  • Some people advise boiling chanterelles in advance to kill the pathogenic microorganisms that live in them and ensure disinfection. But such processing can change the taste qualities of mushrooms, for example, make them hard, so it is better to skip this stage, especially if chanterelles are bought in the store (they were probably grown artificially in specially prepared soil). If you collected them yourself and are worried, then just boil them or provide a complete heat treatment during the cooking process.
  • Chanterelles are porous, so it is very important before cooking to wash them well in running water and clean them to remove all contaminants.
