Chants... Another question...

I was just over at mushroomexpert.com pouring over a few things planning from what the post-morel season holds. Chants are a late summer into fall find, correct? Sooner? I remember finding black trumpets (before I knew what they were) in mid-September... Thanks in advance...

I agree with June , weather permitting. I've found black trumpets, even into early November.

Re: Chants... Another question...

Anyone have any idea which chant is most commonly found as an edible in Michigan. I'm thinking the "big yellow" chant - looking for appropriate common and scientific names. I'm reading up on the different genius and species and didn't realize who many different ones they are. Only chant I remember actually finding is the black trumpets years ago. How many different types to you actively hunt or find?

Re: Chants... Another question...

I think the common chanty (Cantharellus cibarius) is probably Michigan's most commonly found chanterelle in specific locations. However, the cinnabar species is probably more wide spread. To a lesser degree, I find the black trumpet and less substantial yellow-footed chanterelle.

Re: Chants... refresh my memory...

I have found the standard yellow/golden chanterelle in Michigan anywhere from very late June until very early September, but typically it peaks from mid-July through mid-August. I have found them in October in northern California.

The black trumpet is far less predictable, in my opinion, running anywhere from invisible (most years) to all over the place (once a decade). I've found them from late June through late October in Michigan.

I usually start looking around the 4th of July, but since I don't like hot weather or flying insects when I'm in the woods, I only go out about once a week until I start finding them.

Letting chanterelles grow is a huge mistake, in my opinion, because the worms like them even more than humans do, so pick them small if you can.

I picked quite a few of them in early July last year. Those are VERY tasty too!
