Chanterelle Mushroom Duxelles Risotto

Crafted with our own duxelles, this creamy and delicious recipe is a favorite here at the farm.

Ingredients:
1½ cups Arborio rice
4 cups chicken stock
½ cup white wine (if desired)
½ finely chopped onions or shallots
1-2 tablespoons chopped garlic (if desired)
8 tablespoons butter or olive oil (can use a mixture)
1 cup Chanterelle mushroom duxelles
¼ cup grated Grana cheese
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Method:
1. In a saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil and then turn down to a simmer to keep hot.

2. In another large saucepan over medium low heat, melt 4-5 tablespoons of butter and cook the onions until soft but not brown. Add garlic and continue cooking for about 2 minutes. Turn the heat up and add the Arborio rice, stir for about one minute. Add a ladleful of stock to the rice and continue stirring until almost absorbed.

3. Add another ladleful of stock and the wine (if using) and continue stirring. Repeat until all the stock is gone and the rice is creamy and tender.

4. Stir in the remaining butter, the duxelles and grated Grana until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with fresh parsley, then serve.

Emmer Pancake & Waffle Mix

Plan on 1 cup of prepared mix yielding six 4-inch pancakes, or two 8-inch waffles.

Ingredients:
1 cup emmer pancake and waffle mix
⅓ cup milk
¾ cup buttermilk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons unsalted, melted butter or oil

Method:
1. Mix together the wet ingredients and then fold those ingredients into 1 cup of the emmer mix and whisk together.

2. Heat a griddle or waffle iron, brushing generously with oil or butter. Add desired amount of mix. For pancakes, when bottoms brown and surface starts to bubble, flip cakes and continue to heat until cooked through.

Chorizo Scramble

Try serving this spicy scramble with a dollop of cool crème fraîche on top.

Ingredients:
8 eggs
8 ounces chorizo sausage
¼ cup milk
½ cup chopped leeks, white and light green parts only
½ sweet onion, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly-chopped parsley
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Heat the butter or oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the chorizo sausage and cook through, breaking the sausage into small chunks with a wooden spoon. Then, add the spring onions and leeks and cook, stirring constantly, for an additional 2-3 minute, until both are softened and fragrant.

2. Crack eggs and break over a shallow bowl. Break yolks with a whisk or fork, then whisk together with the milk, seasoning generously with salt and pepper. Add eggs to the frying pan and mix with the chorizo and vegetables.

3. Cook, stirring occasionally until eggs are set and no longer runny. Gently mix in the freshly-chopped parsley and serve immediately.

Fettuccine with Sautéed Chanterelle Mushrooms

Rich with locally-foraged mushrooms, chicken stock and herbs, this pasta beautifully captures the flavors of fall.

Ingredients:
1 pound fresh fettuccine
2 cups Chanterelle mushrooms, washed and patted dry
¼ cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided in half
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ cup combined fresh chopped parsley, sage and thyme
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
¼ cup grated Grana-style cheese

Method:
1. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Drop in pasta noodles and cook until al dente, about 4 to 6 minutes. Drain and rinse, reserving ½ cup of the starchy cooking liquid.

2. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter with the olive oil over medium heat, stirring to combine. Add Chanterelle mushrooms and garlic and sauté 2-3 minutes until mushrooms are soft and tender and then add chicken stock and cook until reduced slightly, another 3-4 minutes. Add in fresh herbs and season generously with salt and pepper.

3. Add in drained pasta and toss. Add in reserved 1 tablespoon of butter and grated cheese, and mix to distribute. If pasta seems dry, add in reserved cooking liquid 1 tablespoon at a time until adequately moist.
