What the F&%$
Welcome to our newest section of our weekly newsletter-What the F&%$ Was That?! Where we ask (and answer) the age-old question, what in the world did you just bring in my house?
This week's star, Chanterelle Mushrooms! I'm grown worldwide, but you just have to travel as far as any old-growth forest in Washington to find my birthplace. What am I?! Well, I'm funky and funghi, my long name is Cantharellus cibarius, also known as the forager's friend, but I really prefer Chanterelle, it's elegant as shit! Wouldn't you agree?! Thing is, it's like pokemon anyone can catch me, and if you see me out here, you're gonna find a whole click of us because we roll thick through these timbers!! Whoody Whoo! You can find me where the owls roam in the real backwoods but where you want me is in your kitchen real close and warmlike with some butter and herbs. People wait, looking at their watches, ready to set oven timers when it's my season! I don't mean to blow my own horn, but I'ma trumpet keep ya dumb fit, got your stomach doin' some flips, all must submit, I'm the summit!! Oooh, off the top!! But I digress, I'm good for you kids! I am an excellent source of minerals, vitamin D, and vitamin B, protein, fiber, and I also provide anti-inflammatory properties. Put me in your mouth! What's not to love! Aren't you happy you met me?
