Synonyms: camagrog, chanterelle


It grows in humid pine forests, mainly red pine, and is usually surrounded by moss. One of its main characteristics is that large colonies are formed, although they must be taken one by one because they are very delicate and they break easily.

The perfect season for camagrocs is from September to winter, when the first frosts begin. It is one of the species that lasts the longest, since most disappear when autumn arrives.

For many, one of the best wild mushrooms, and also very easy to preserve. Due to its size and flavour, it is good in all kinds of elaborations and preserves, from fish and meat to rice, liqueurs or desserts. Its delicate flavour and fruity aroma are its best points.

This mushroom is one of the easiest to dry.
