30or so fresh yellowfoot chanterellesweight doesn't really matter, but if all the mushrooms you have are small, e.g. the size of pencil eraser, you should add more than twenty. My 30 yellowfeet chanterelles were all about the 3 inches tall.
.75 litres of fine vodkathe type which you would want to drink by itself. I used Prairie vodka, an organic vodka made around Benson Minnesota, its available in many liquor stores in the metro area.
Clean the chanterelles of debris using a small brush or if they are really filthy, by rinsing quickly under some cold running water.
Combine the chanterelles and the vodka in an air-tight, nonreactive container, like a glass mason jar. An alternate method would be to just stuff the mushrooms in the bottle after taking a healthy pull, but then they'll be harder to remove.
Store the mushroom vodka in a cool place away from sunlight for at least 1 week, then refrigerate to keep the aroma and enjoy. The vodka flavor will eventually smooth out and get mild.
