>> And when it’s no longer the season? Out of season, varieties such as morels or chanterelles can be purchased frozen or dried. The mushrooms are then cooked still frozen in the pan or boiled for 1 minute before being integrated – well drained – into other preparations (quiches, etc.). Those purchased dried must be rehydrated for an hour in lukewarm water, which will be filtered and kept to flavor the preparations.

Mushrooms: how to prepare them properly?

Before cooking them, we cut off the earthy part and rinse them very quickly under a small stream of cold water to rid them of any small grains of sand. On the other hand, we avoid at all costs soaking them so as not to alter the taste. They are then dried using a cloth or absorbent paper.

You should never peel them, it’s useless. Aesthetically speaking, they will just be whiter. In this case, we use a small sharp knife and remove the skin from the edge towards the top of the hat. If you plan to eat them raw, you can lemon them to prevent them from oxidizing and turning black.
