The Van Nuys Costco has chanterelles for $10/lb!
nice. Is that a good price?
Yes they are $50 - $75 a pound on Amazon. Its an amazing price…now I have to decide how to cook them…
bought them at burbank costco last weekend. 9.99 a pound.
they were pretty darn good.
Chanterelles are so overrated.
There’s a reason people drown these things in butter. And it’s not because they have a surplus of butter on hand.
of course they are. its a vast conspiracy funded by the shady chanterelle lobby.
Fresh chanterelles at Costco? Hmmm . . .
Local farmer’s market had them for twice that, but – fortunately for us – a good friend forages for them, selling them to restaurants (it’s how he paid for law school!), and just gave us a pound . . .
Do you know where Costco gets them? I love chanterelles when I can forage for them myself, but I agree that they’re over-priced, especially given the poor condition they’re often in.
The MdR Costco has carried chanterelles for a while now - 5 years or more?
I don’t know. They weren’t knock it out of the park like morels or porcinis, but they were worth $10/lb. Roasted them with cream and rich chicken stock then served them over fresh pasta. I did add butter which was a good idea.
When is adding butter ever a bad idea?
So true! I have to give credit to @ipsedixit as it wasn’t in the recipe!!
I’m a mushroom lover and I would have to disagree! I love them all! Sautéed chanterelles on a hanger steak- heaven! I wait until they are in season and get them at the Japanese grocery stores in my hood or the farmers market on the rare winter we get a rain storm.
