grey chanterelle

[English] plural grey chanterelle mushrooms

The grey chanterelle is a fluted, trumpet-shaped, wild mushrooms with a ruffled edge, dark grey to black in colour. They are commonly found under pine, beech or birch trees from July until the first frosts and thrive in wet summers. They are usually sautéed in butter with chopped onions, but are not considered as tasty as the horn of plenty, which they resemble. (If gathering mushrooms you must be absolutely certain what you have before you eat them as many are very poisonous.)
