Nicely done! I can see the holes in many of your stems, which is the same thing I find. Sometimes if I halve a chant that has holes, the cap looks relatively fine. However, most of the time it looks like there are tunnels of “sawdust”, and I’ll often find a maggot or two if I look hard enough.
Question: do you toss these? Or is there another way to “treat” them. I honestly don’t care much about a couple bugs, but I don’t want to force them upon unwitting guests 😂.
Thanks in advance!

I find that in most cases they burrow up through the stem and straight out the top. I figure its only more nutrients, and once cooked, you don't even see the holes or maggots... So I figure if you don't mention it, they'll never know! 😁
Of course if they're too bad or infested, I'll toss them after going through them at home.

I checked my Go To spot at lunch today and harvested a nice bag of them. Pretty much no sign of bugs! Found some real nice fatties too!

Here is the finished product! I used a jar of them last night just to see how the tast and texture is and they this is the best method i have tried so far to preserve chantrelles.

@Trudee was a recipe we found online. Basically it was boil the shrooms for 5 to 10 minutes strain them then put them in jars and cover with boiling water then put the lids on and put jars in pressure canner and bring it to a slow boil for 45 minutes

All that boiling doesn't take the flavor out???
