Get a gander at these lovelies. These are cinnabar chanterelles (Cantharellus cinnibarinus to the mushroom hunters out there). They are not as flavorful as the more commonly seen golden chanterelles, however, when your backyard hands you chanterelles, you eat them. Preferably sauteed in butter.
They were fairly mild, compared to other wild mushrooms I've eaten. But I was just so tickled to be eating a mushroom from my backyard, it didn't much matter.
