    I'm looking forward to finding some this month or next. I've had decent success finding Chanterelles in the Oregon coast mountain range from September to about January, with fewer in December and January.

    We moved to south Oregon last summer, so I need to find new picking spots this autumn.

    I'm rather simple about the cooking; garlic and butter is about all I use.

    Wish I could run into 30lbs of Chantrelles. Your in good shape if you know some good spots and get there at the right time. I found a total of 5 small Goldens this year and they were great. Our season here is over (snow now on the ground!).

    How do you preserve them? I'm sure you cant eat that many too quickly.

    I pick only to eat. Also, I only cut at the stem so they grow back later as these are hard to find where I live. Depending on the mushroom many times I will sun dry them, and then use the foodsaver to seal them for later use.

    >>I only cut at the stem so they grow back later
    I'm not sure I understand. Can you explain exactly what you are doing and why this will cause them to grow back?

    By slicing them off at ground level you leave the Mycelium in the ground to grow more mushrooms in the future. If you just rip everything out of the ground there is less chance of finding mushrooms in the same spot next year.

    Hello Clifford


    I'm from New Brunswick and been looking for a mushroom buyer. Found several patch f chanterelle during the last three years and there is some patch that I could easily get 50 pound a day at the right time. Found also some winter chanterelle ( cantharellus infundibuliformis ) by the hundred during moose hunting trip.
