Chanterelles – Best Mushrooms Ever

I’m not a connoisseur of mushrooms, but I picked some Chanterelles in the woods a few days ago, and they’re the tastiest mushrooms I’ve ever had. Sautéed with garlic, thyme, salt and pepper — beauty. Look around for them the next time you’re walking through the woods. They’re easy to spot. Just make sure they have gills underneath. The ones with a smooth underside are poisonous (or very trippy).

  1. That’s neat. I really have no idea what’s edible in a forest. When the power grids asplode from a gamma ray burst and I’m forced to run away into the forest to get away from the roving gangs, I’m so going to starve to death.. In about a day and a half.
