This convenient selection includes three exquisite varieties: Ceps, aka 'the wild mushroom par excellence'; Chanterelles, with their golden yellow colour and their almost floral fragrance; and Morels, with their honeycombed form and rich, earthy taste.


 

Cooking Instructions:
 
Morels
We recommend keeping these whole for the best presentation.
For best results, cook from frozen.
Cook for 2-3 minutes - either by sautéing in butter, or by adding straight into your finished sauce, ensuring cooked through before serving.
If defrosting them, conserve the defrosting juices to add to your sauce, simmering to reduce.
Ceps
Simply sauté in butter add a squeeze of lemon juice and a grind of black pepper and add to omlettes, pasta or piled on toast.

PLEASE NOTE:
Take care not to overcook your Ceps.
Like all mushrooms, they are composed mostly of water and can go slimy if allowed to steam or boil.
Chanterelles
Sauté in butter, add a splash of white wine near the end of cooking to release their full flavour.

PLEASE NOTE:
Chantrelles can have a slight bitter edge to their flavour - this is a natural feature of this mushroom.
We suggest cooking them with another naturally sweet ingredient to balance this subtle hint of bitterness.
