I friend of mine brought me some beautiful chanterelle mushrooms that she foraged for. I seem to remember that you can’t eat them raw, that they can make you sick raw. Does anyone know for sure?
Hey schmoopee – This website might be helpful.
It says, “Very few people eat chanterelles raw. They are peppery and upsetting, and they can make some people ill. In any case, their finest flavor can only be appreciated when they are thoroughly cooked.”
