Elina presents her mother’s chanterelle sauce recipe
It’s again one of my favorite seasons: mushrooms. Time to enjoy some delicious chanterelles. Earlier this year it looked like the hot and dry weather had taken a toll on the amount of mushrooms in the Finnish forests. But things seem to have changed and the chanterelles are popping out everywhere like… wellm mushrooms. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go to my regular foraging spot to pick the chanterelles this year, so I bought some on the market square in Turku (kauppatori, in Finnish).
Typically we can find this so-called “ gold of the forest” in the backyard of my family’s countryside house. Since I can remember, we have picked them aplenty and my mother turned them into a delicious creamy sauce. Her recipe is super simple and in my opinion, that’s right. A sauce does not require many ingredients because the mushrooms’ itself taste already so heavenly. I want to share my mother’s recipe with you - this time seasoned with some dried nettle powder.
200g of chanterelle mushrooms
2dl thick cream or plant based alternative
½ dl of dried nettle powder
Butter (or vegetable oil)
Serve with cooked potatoes or pasta.
Enjoy or: hyvää ruokahalua!
