There are a few things my outdoor-loving boyfriend has exposed me to in the PNW that I never thought of doing/trying. Squid fishing & Chanterelle hunting are two of the more “odd” ones, yet, I love him for it. It’s something the two of us get to do together and have an absolute blast at. Now that Fall is in full swing, scavenging for fresh Chanterelle mushrooms has been on the top of the list. And if there is one thing I’ve learned about mushroom pickers, is they keep their spots secretive. So with no clue as to where this is, here are a few photos of us finding these little golden beauties. They are DELICIOUS on top of steak, risotto, or on their own.
Given we had so many days without rain here in Seattle, I think we were a bit early on the hunt, because most of the ones we found were fairly small. But, we’ll be back.
