Chanterelle Infused Vodka

15 Jun

I just made chanterelle vodka, it was sooooo easy.
I am watching it and it is already turning a nice peach color. When it is done infusing, I am going to strain it through a coffee filter, and maybe find another recipe for the alcohol doused chanterelles.

Chanterelle Vodka - once the mushrooms have sunk to the bottom, the vodka is ready to be served.

Yesterday I went to the liqour store and picked up 1.5 gallons of the plainest vodka I could find.
The jug I used is 1 gallon, and I found it in the woods when Tradd and I were morel hunting. I knew it was going to come to a good use 🙂

Recipe
— 1 gallon vodka
— enough fresh chanterelles that will fill up a quarter of your 1 gallon jug
— 1 gallon jug

Directions
— put the chanterelles into the jug
— pour the vodka over them
— close up the bottle, and let sit
— ready for drinking when all the chanterelles have sunk to the bottom of the jug

Here is another recipe that I am going to make later with the left over vodka, when Tradd bring me some caraway seeds from the store.

Recipe: Spiced Mushrooms in Alcohol
— 1 cup chanterelles
— 1 tsp caraway seeds
— 1 lemon
— 1 red chili
— 1.5 cups vodka

Combine all ingredients into a clean jar, pour vodka over them, when mushrooms stop floating, it is ready to serve. Chill before serving.

      I bet this is refreshing *and* medicinal in 4-8 oz servings 🙂
