I’ll take your PB&J and raise you a CB&J! Chanterelles, Butter & Jam!
Here’s a fanciful take on an old school classic. #CBandJ. Ditch the peanut butter and instead add a heaping pile of buttery sautéed fresh chanterelles. This 15 minute breakfast, lunch or snack is quick and loaded with flavor.
If you’re a mushroom junkie like me, you might also want to try this Beginners Creamy One-Pan Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto with Fresh Herbs!
These hearty mushrooms, although meaty in texture, are slightly fruity (think apricot) and have a mild pepper bite that make them so versatile.
A take on a classic. Elevate your childhood favorite with some seasonal chanterelle mushrooms. Chanterelles are growing wild around Atlanta this July and there’s something about their fruity character that lends themselves nicely to a little butter and jam. So ditch the peanut butter and try this Chanterelle CBandJ.

Pip Tip: To wash or not wash the mushrooms? That is the question. To which my answer is “it’s more of a rinse.” Gently inspect each individual mushroom, one at a time, for dirt and insects. Brush off any obvious dirt with a paper towel. If they’re pretty dirty gently rinse them in a cold water bath, swishing them around, but never leaving them in the water to soak. Just swishing for 5 seconds and then immediately remove and wipe away any residue with your hands or a damp paper towel. Then lay them out on a clean, dry dishtowel to dry for at least 10-15 minutes and then it’s go time. Some folks are adamant about not using water for fear of washing away flavor, but I really don’t think a quick rinse does any harm. If you disagree, clean them using a soft bristled brush to gently brush the dirt away.
