mushroom, MUSHROOM

holy crap. my brother went chanterelle picking yesterday, and this has arrived on my doorstep via Fedex.

he says it is my birthday present, and i think it's one hell of a present. let's take another look:

he claims that when they are this fresh, they give off enough liquid to reduce separately into a gravy with a light roux. he did say that the batch he made last night were drier than usual, so i guess we'll see how these turn out. i think i am going to just saute them, make however much gravy I can with their juices, and put them over toast.

damn. it's weird seeing so many of them all in one place. weird but GOOD.
