What do Pickled Mushrooms Taste Like?

Pickled mushrooms have the wonderful savoriness of fresh mushrooms, but with an extra zing and bite from the pickle brine! In this recipe, we’ve opted to bring out the sweet and fruity aromas of fresh chanterelles by adding peaches to the jar. A little thyme brings it all together for a delectable, summery treat!

Serving Suggestions:

Use these pickled chanterelles and peaches wherever you want to bring a little sunshine to your meals. Pair them with a soft cheese, a crisp white wine, or an assortment of nuts (might we suggest hickory nuts?). Take it the extra mile by serving the peaches over ice cream, the chanterelles in hearty pasta, and the brine in your next salad dressing.
