Kantarelle

It's Kantarelle (Chanterelle) season here in Stockholm.  These beautiful golden/yellow fungus are a sight to behold.  I see them everywhere - in the supermarkets, markets, restaurant menus...

I guess we were caught up in the fever when we were in hötorget just yesterday.  We wanted to buy about 250grams, but somehow ended up with 1kg!

1kg worth of Kantarelle sitting in our fridge

These golden delights are supposed to be fully loaded with vitamin C & potassium and among the richer source of vitamin D.  I guess we have better load ourselves up to prepare for the cold winter months (I'm so going to miss Mr Sun!)

I've heard they are simple to cook, with just butter, salt and pepper.
