Q.

Can you freeze chanterelle mushrooms?

A.

Absolutely! 

Because freezing speed effects the resulting quality of the preserved mushrooms, and your refrigerator’s freezer is relatively slow compared to industrial models, home-frozen mushrooms won’t be quite as good as commercially frozen wild mushrooms.  

That said, freezing is probably the best way to preserve chanterelles for later use…when dried they reconstitute woody, making them only suitable for soups & purees.  They’re far more tender when frozen & thawed.
