Can I can fresh or cooked chantrelles, and if so, what is the process? If not, why not?

There are not safe canning instructions for chanterelle mushrooms. It has to do with the texture that would result if they were processed long enough to be safe.
They should freeze well. Slicing and sautéing first will improve the results when thawed for use.
