These lovely orange mushrooms are just starting --take a book with you if you are not sure about identity eg Collins guide to mushrooms and toadstools,
Food for Free Richard Maybe
Seaweed and eat it Fiona Houston and Xa Milne

I made soup with my first picking yesterday just simmering with some onion, stock and maybe a potatoe.
Then I use my indispensable kitchen gadget - the one that I stick into the pan and "wheejch" its a puree!
Then taste , season and maybe a splash of milk.
Chantarelle are also excellent sauted in butter. served on toast with some chopped parsley
To preserve--they dry very well left in an airy room.
