I bought a package of dried Chanterelle mushrooms, and the instructions on the back said you should wash them and then reconstitute them in water before eating. It also has in boldface, “Warning: DO NOT EAT DRIED MUSHROOMS!”
Not that I would, it might be too much like mushroom jerky, but why exactly are these dried chanterelles so deadly? Fungi-based disease? Make your eyes water?
Someone save me from my ignants
