Canned Mushroom Results!

Back in October we posted about trying to can Chantrelle mushrooms after finding 70# of them.

Well, we are back to report on our results.

They are fantastic! Great texture, and the flavor is awesome - nicely concentrated.

Here they are on a steak sandwich. Yum!

Most of the literature we read warned against canning wild mushrooms, but several folks posted online that they had had good results.

We had good results!

After 2 weeks of frequent usage, we are happy to report no 'side effects.'

The only downside is that with all the freezing temperatures outside, it isn't such a good time to hunt Chantrelles anymore, and we want more!

Oh well... next time we will can a bunch.
