Kantarelleja - Chanterelles

Kantarelli, keltavahvero, chanterelle, Cantharellus cibarius - one of my favorite mushrooms. This is the time of year to find them, whether you search the forests or your local marketplace.

Time to make an omelette.

  1. Anonymous left a question which I inadvertently deleted regarding chanterelles and where to find them in the Jyväskylä area. Since chanterelles grow in the same place year after year, lots of mushroom hunters are pretty secrective concerning their mushroom gathering locations. I suggest looking in areas with lots of birches, although they also are know to grow in areas with pines or even in meadows. Sunny places with lots of organic material on the forest floor are good places to look.

    Another great place to look is the marketplace. The price will come down after the season really comes into swing.
