Chanterelles are one of the most easily identified mushrooms.
Lots of mushrooms grow wild here in Newfoundland however I am not confident enough in my mushroom identification skills to pick some of the many edible varieties.
Chanterelles have a distinctive apricot scent and a egg yolk yellow trumpet shape.
I will be cleaning mine with a pastry brush, it's best never to wash wild mushrooms with water or they will absorb the water and become soggy. After brushed clean, I will lay them out on a cooling rack and dry them in the sunshine. They are great dried for the winter to add to soups, stews or cream sauces.
