As summer heat settles into Missouri, forage the forest floor for a culinary treat.
This week on Discover Nature, search for chanterelle mushrooms fruiting in the woods.
Chanterelles are funnel- or trumpet-shaped and have wavy cap-edges. Usually orange or yellow in color, with a fruity fragrance when fresh.
Chanterelles do not have true gills under the caps, such as those found on the poisonous, but similar-looking jack-o’-lantern mushrooms, which are sharp-edged and knifelike.
