Chanterelle (Craterellus cornucopioides)

This mushroom is also a relative of the real chanterelle. Although in appearance you can't tell right away. A soot-colored mushroom, without the wrinkles characteristic of chanterelles on the outside.

Description: A cap with a diameter of 3-5 (8) cm, tubular (the recess passes into a hollow leg), with a turned, lobed, uneven edge. The inside is fibrous-wrinkled, brown-black or almost black, in dry weather brownish, gray-brown, on the outside it is coarsely folded, waxy, with a grayish or gray-lilac bloom.

Stem 5-7 (10) cm long and about 1 cm in diameter, tubular, hollow, gray, narrowed towards the base, brownish or black-brownish, rigid.

Spore powder is white.

The pulp is thin, brittle, filmy, gray (after boiling – black), odorless.

Distribution: The black chanterelle grows from July to the last decade of September (massively from mid-August to mid-September) in deciduous and mixed forests, in humid places, near roads, in an intergrowth and in a colony, not often.

Similarity: From the sinuous funnel (Craterellus sinuosus) gray it differs in a hollow stem, the cavity of which is a continuation of the funnel.

Evaluation: Edible mushroom (4 categories), only caps (hard rubbery legs) are used, fresh (boiling for about 10-15 minutes), dried (flesh brightens). In foreign Europe, it is considered a delicious mushroom, used for soups and seasonings (in powder)
