Girolles picture.

Girolles.
cab

Very wet ones too Smile

In English, a girolle is a chanterelle. Of course, what they call a chanterelle in France is a winter chanterelle in the UK. Unless you're in Sainsburys, where they're sold as Autumn chanterelles, and the reason for THAT is a long story.

What's the purpose on having them on water? Or is it vodka?

Well spotted

As you realised there floating in water, they needed a good wash. I only wash Girolles because I think they can hold up to it. Theres nothing worse than crunching on a piece of grit when you're enjoying something that tasty. Well I can think off some things, like someone stubbing out a roll up in your eye, licking a tramps arm pit, do I need to go on? But its not pleasant is it! Theres no way for example I would wash a Cep, sorry Boletus Edulis for anybody affended by french terminology, no matter how many slugs had a go on it.
As a Chef we call Yellow Chanterelle- Girolles and Winter Chanterelle- Winter Chanterelle to aviod any confusion or time wasting conversations. Anyway what's wrong with calling the mushrooms by there french Gastronomic names (after all we all eat them, don't we)? Most french country folk proberly know more about mycology than your average brit. I'm forever pulling Death caps out of idiots baskets out in the forest.

I think its rather sad when the English names for these things get forgotten. Penny bun sounds better to me than cep, chanterelle better than girolle. I wouldn't go around referring to plums as prunes, so I don't go around calling changerelles girolles.

You obviously have a 'place'.

Yeah, I have a few but there where lots of pickers out this year and a lot of Polish. They seemed to know exactly what they were looking for.
