It's July. That means it is hot. And humid. And you know what that means, right?



It's time for chanterelles! Here's today's haul. Chanterelles and chicken, tonight.

Sadly our one wild cherry is rather a long way up, so we never see any cherries. I have had them from other trees in the past though, and they are rather good, although the cherry brandy made from them wasn't much to my taste. We seem to be in raspberry season in the woods at the moment, but not sure if I will have a lot of time to pick this week.

Jam Lady, those chanterelles look good. We occasionally get a few, but it has been quite dry here lately. We have rain forecast for later in the week, so perhaps we may get some next week.

They do look yummy. I've never had them though, which is a shame as I love mushrooms.

Dinner last night was quite yummy. The chanterelles were prime - open the refrigerator and their perfume just wafted out. We had chanterelles sauteed with onion, diced the leftover broiled chicken thighs from the night before, served over rice.

I am apparently a creature of habit - my previous Foraging entry from August 2018 was about chanterelles AND the identical menu. Too funny!

Why change? Because last night we had chanterelles sauteed with onion, green peas, pan broiled shrimp served over rice. And that might have been even a little better.

Finished off the chanterelles tonight.



Oh yes, also some salmon. And wine, a rose.

I do love chanterelles. Never been fortunate enough to forage them but occasionally, I do buy them if they don't look too past their prime.

We once had a load of Morels come up through our gravel. Unfortunately, it has never been repeated.

Cherries absolute disaster this year (bloody fruit fly), but have harvested Herman and Ruby plums already, some apricots yesterday and even a few loquats

Well done you. We got a bowl full of cherries and the birds had the rest.

Pity about the cherries. I have had some local ones, and they were beautiful. Their apricots should be ready, but not likely to see them, so will miss another year sadly. Looking forward to the start of the plum season as our farm shop does the full range from early to late.
