Looks like this is our mushroom of the week here....we love the much larger summer orange chanterelles for eating, but have never had enough of these small red chanterelles to be worth gathering until this year. Anybody else finding them? How are you preparing them?

These and the orange ones are so much fun to spot in the woods...I think my eyesight isn't up to morels anymore

I notice in my photos they don't look as deep, deep orange as in reality...I think the ones on the edges of some of the pics are truer to color.

I love the lesser chanterelles when they show up! We get the yellow footed here in the fall. I think the smaller ones tend to have fewer arthropods inside them, and they are easier to clean and prep for cooking.

We've noticed that also...if we are a bit late finding the smooth chanterelles the stem is riddled with vertical tunnels...haven't really tried to ID what does that. I usually am hungry enough for a good mushroom, though, that i will cut around all of that, lots of times the cap will be in better shape.
i'm looking forward to cooking some of these little red ones whole.

Breakfast (or at least the first course)......30 minutes from picking the mushrooms and lambsquarters, cleaning and cooking, to our plates....with a little olive oil and salt

I just really love that color.

Wow, awesome photos Judith! The red chanterelle is not found here in Oregon, so it's really interesting for me (the chanterelle fanatic) to see what those guys look like.

A spore print of a red chanterelle....peterson's field guide says 'pinkish' this maybe 'pinkish yellow' ? the actual print looks 'pinkish'....my photo looks more yellow.

i found a lot more of these than usual also, we got a LOT of rain for about a week or ten days straight that may have something to do with it

The Chantrelles have started to pop up here too.
Walker county, alabama. All the rain and heat we are going to get next week will have them all out in full bloom.

I picked a few handfuls of quarter sized ones this afternoon to cook up with dinner.
My honey hole looks like someone threw a bag of orange popcorn all over the ground there are so many just beginning to pop up out of the soil.

They look so pretty! Wish I got to try them once... Mushrooms are wonderful. One time I thought I found plenty of chanterelles, figured out they were false chanterelles (Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca) once I made soup out of them.
