question on drying
    #11235574 - 10/12/09 10:14 PM (8 years, 9 days ago)

would drying shrooms out by putting them in a phone book to absord the water cause them to lose more potency than other methods? (like the desicent method)

I don't like this idea, because the mushroom will then soak up the ink/chemicals from the phone book pages. I also don't like using a fan, because I can't seem to get them "cracker-dry" that way.

After a few slightly heated discussions with my roommates about my mushroom drying habits, I finally figured out how to dry them on the grill so that they don't smell up the house. Try this:

1. Slice the mushrooms about 3mm thick as long as possible.
2. Arrange them on the top rack. Don't use the heavy iron grill that's used to sear steaks--use the rack for toasting buns.
3. Use a metal strainer for smaller pieces and for those that shrink and threaten to fall through the grate in the drying process.
4. Put the burners on the lowest setting. You should be able to hold your hand at the top rack without getting burned at all.
5. Leave the grill open.
6. Check on them every half-hour or so. Flip them around a bit.

The mushrooms should be dry in about three hours.
