Chanterelles raw?

I friend of mine brought me some beautiful chanterelle mushrooms that she foraged for. I seem to remember that you can’t eat them raw, that they can make you sick raw. Does anyone know for sure?

Thank you!


  • Hey schmoopee – This website might be helpful.

    It says, “Very few people eat chanterelles raw. They are peppery and upsetting, and they can make some people ill. In any case, their finest flavor can only be appreciated when they are thoroughly cooked.”

    @Kait. Please educate yourself. Copy and paste some text from another website is cheap and only proves you know nothing about but pretend to. Besides, many years have past since the article you copied was written and science has now much more positive proof, especially about the benefits of eating chanterelles, raw. Your comment should be deleted since it is utterly outdated and provides zero [0] value, except, planting wrong ideas into the heads of an ignorant, rather scaring them off than "Educating".
