preserving shrooms with salt?
    #1059714 - 11/17/02 08:36 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

well i recently harvested some shrooms and didnt have any dessicant and the shrooms werent drying properly on top of the range so i just put them in tupperware tubs and completely caked them in salt! i heard that thiss will prevent the shrooms from rotting for a good while...any thoughts/experiences?

Sounds nasty, but it'll probably work. I guess we'll see.

Some people use epsom salts to dry mushies , they use it like desicant , I do not believe they cover the mushies with salt . Sounds like those will taste real salty ! Next time get the epsom salt make a chamber , put salt in bottom , lay mushies on some sort of screened tray , close up tight leave alone for several days , and wha la dry mushies .
Good Luck :cool:

as i said i didnt have any dessicant and couldnt be bothered to go to the hardware store to get some...i thought that using salt would be a good idea as thats what they used to preserve meat with in the olden days...i didnt get sodium chloride confused with epsom salts :smirk:

Table salt will not gather as much moisture , and will clump and hang on to the mushies . Live and learn . They might not taste so bad .............. :tongue:  :wink:
Get some desicant , or at bare minimum use epsom salts , and bake the hell uot of salts prior to using them . And you do not lay any form of drying agent on the mushies , put below them to draw moisture away from mush to drying agent .

If drying is to much trouble .............eat the fuckers fresh ! :wink: :cool:

Put them in a paper bag in the fridge and they will last a couple of days.

Freshies can last one maybe two days in a paper bag , in the fridge . But is best to eat freshies at time of picking ! IMHO .
In a way you are using as a desicant ......... salt is a natural absorber of moisture . I have done some hunting in my days , I do understand the concept of using salt to preserve meat . This is mushies , not meat . They will be very salty and if not carefull they could still mold .  :tongue:

Salt is good for killing cobweb mold. Why don't you just dry your shrooms by laying them somewhere's warm overnight? Some people do it on thier computer!

They should be fine if you keep them in the fridge. Remember to either bake or microwave the epsom until it is fully dehydrated. AND don't let the mushies touch the salt or you might experience a bad time on the can.
