What is considered "cracker dry"? How do I know if my mushrooms go bad?
    #11379160 - 11/03/09 08:49 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Here is a question I can't seem to find, and seems to be a rarely rarely asked question.

What does it mean when a mushroom is cracker dry?  Do they have to crunch and flake when they get squeezed? (like crackers?)

My mushrooms seem dried but if you squeeze them it feels like you are squeezing a folded piece of cardboard or something.  The caps though seem more drier than the stems.

How do I know if my mushrooms have been dried properly?  What are some indications that are visible when they have not been dried (BESIDES visible mold growing on them).  Any particular smell to them?

Sounds like you got them about 90% dry. When my shrooms are at that point they then go into a desicant chamber. Damprid with a screen above to hold the shrooms. I keep them in there for another 3 or 4 days then store in a mason jar with the silica packs you find everywhere.

I heard you can go to any shoe place and ask for dessicants... they may give you some for free but ask for alot and say its for ALL of your girl's shoes or something! ^^

Not sure about this claim though as I have never tried it yet.

And yea, I guess they are not dried yet if they can still be squeezed.  I may have to throw them in a low temperature oven .

Cracker dry means dry like a cracker. Take a cracker and snap it in half, does you're mushroom do that?

They have it at Food Lion, Walmart, Dollar Store, Harris Teeter, Lowes, etc. Pretty common around here.

I always see damprid in walgreens.
Also epsom salt works but you have to pop it in the oven first, not sure how all that works.
