How to store chanterelles

Store fresh chanterelles in the refrigerator for a maximum of 2 days, and it is best to cook them immediately after collection and even more so after purchase.

How to keep fresh chanterelles

It is better to cook chanterelles right away. But if this is not possible, then you can put them in the refrigerator, but not more than for a day. More moist chanterelles are stored even less in time. If even 24 hours is not enough, then you can first boil the mushrooms, cool, and then put in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

Chanterelles can be dried and then stored for up to several months. The simplest method: cut lengthwise, put on the oven rack in one row, dry at a temperature not exceeding 50 degrees. After 20-24 hours, the mushrooms will be ready; you need to store them in a dark place in a tightly closed jar.

How much to store chanterelles in the freezer

We freeze raw chanterelles: if the mushrooms are not boiled before freezing, then they retain their good shape and aroma. But without boiling, chanterelles can acquire a bitter taste. To avoid this, you need to choose only the freshest. Then wipe the chanterelles with a napkin and send them to the freezer. Store for 2-3 months.

Freeze boiled chanterelles: the recipe is similar, but before freezing, the mushrooms must be boiled. Boil water, salt with 1-2 teaspoons of salt per 1 kg of mushrooms, add mushrooms. There should be 2 times more water than mushrooms. The resulting dirty film must be removed constantly. Boil the chanterelles for 5-10 minutes, store for up to six months.

Frost fried chanterelles: Fry the mushrooms in vegetable oil in a skillet for about 20 minutes, until all the moisture is gone. Let cool and then put in the freezer. It is better to store a lot of chanterelles in this way, as chanterelles are fried and take up very little space in the freezer. You can store them like this for up to six months.
