How to fry butternuts

Boil butter before frying in salted water for 10 minutes , pass through a colander, fry over medium heat in an open pan, until the liquid boils away, 20 minutes.
Frozen butternuts, which were not boiled before freezing, fry in a pan for 40 minutes, first under a lid for 20 minutes over low heat, then 10 minutes over medium heat without a lid.

How to fry butternuts

1. Wash the mushrooms, peel, optionally (optionally) peel off the skin from the cap. If the hat is clean, then you can not clean it off; if covered with plant debris, it is easier to remove it along with the film.

2. Boil the butternuts in a small amount of salted water for 10 minutes. This will simplify the disinfection of mushrooms – all contaminants will be removed and neutralized during cooking. If the mushrooms are medium-sized and young, they can not be boiled.

3. After cooking, put the mushrooms in a colander and, when the broth drains (which can be saved and used as a broth or sauce base), start frying. Heat a frying pan with butter or vegetable oil, put the butternuts and fry them for 10 minutes over medium heat until the liquid boils away.

4. When frying, constantly stir the butternuts so that they do not burn. Ready-made butternuts are dark ruddy, slightly springy and crispy on the bite.


To taste, fried butternuts can be seasoned with sour cream. It is important not to cover the pan with a lid when frying and fry them over intense heat so that the butter does not turn into mashed potatoes.

Without cooking , you can fry only young butterflies collected in proven places, as well as frozen mushrooms, if they have been cleaned and thoroughly washed before freezing.

Keep in mind that depending on the humidity in the forest and the freshness of the mushrooms, they may contain more or less water, so the frying time for oil can be from 20 to 35 minutes.
Fresh butternuts can be fried without oil, since they contain enough of their own oily liquid.
