Chanterelle Apricot Tart

This easy savory tart uses apricot and thyme to transform your chanterelles into a five-star meal to share with friends.

What do Chanterelles Taste Like?

Chanterelles have a mild mushroom flavor, with a scent that leans fruity – they often have a distinct apricot aroma! While they’re certainly savory and meaty, they have a much brighter flavor than many other mushrooms, even when cooked. In this recipe, we pair them with apricot jam to bring out their sweetness, thyme to add some herbiness, and cream cheese to bring fat and tang to the party.

When Are Chanterelles in Season?

Like any mushroom, chanterelles’ seasonality and availability varies based on region and weather. Generally speaking, you’ll find them fresh from late Spring to early Fall, with peak harvest around July.
