Why is it not recommended to freeze chanterelles raw (chopped)?

— Mijo Kaliger


Because they're going to get frozen and lose some of their flavor. So even if you just blanch them for one minute, I think that it would be the best practice, even if you buy frozen mushrooms in the grocery store, they have been blanched beforehand. So, but I say this, if you want to, uh, put some centres into a freezer bag and, uh, try them out and see how it works for you. But my own personal practice is that I would blanch them first.
