Rainier Mushroom Kingdom
22 Oct '18 — weekend delight
forests full of mushrooms
My husband and I just completed our first year together outside of Berlin. Last year, we foraged European Chanterelles in Poland. This year, jumbo Chanterelles in the forests near Mount Rainier. They taste different but just as delicious.
I cooked most of them down to store and freeze except for a bowl full–we dehydrated them. Many people on the internet say dehydrating takes out flavor, but we’re planning to put these into soups and broths to add a small twist in flavor.
The mushrooms were delicious in omelettes. For dinner, I’m going to try cooking some in cream and serving it with gnocchi.
