Chanterelle mushrooms became a delicacy of French cuisine in the 18th century. They have a sweet, fruity aroma that makes them popular in cooking, and a wonderful complement to homemade ice cream. Be careful and use a field guide if you’re picking your own Chanterelles. They have a look-alike called Jack-o’-lantern that will make you sick.

1 Quart of Milk
