This weekend while we were out and about walking as a family, Paxlet and I quickly stepped into the forest (more of a copse these days) on Saturday, before lunch, and Sunday, before bedtime, and found chantarelles! I picked and he supported me. Saturday, we found more than I could carry in my hand and we didn’t have any container, so we used his hoodie. It tickled him to be of use in that way. Sunday, we happened to have their tiny red toy bucket with us. At first we didn’t find any and were ready to head home when I found some big blueberries! I picked just over a half bucket of those (3 cups?). As we were leaving the forest, we found the mother load of chanterelles. I topped off the bucket and carried the rest home in a Kleenex.
We found about 2,5 liters ( 10 cups?) each day. I cleaned them, roughly chopped them and popped them in freezer bags for future use.
