Need help regarding Dry Ice
    #1438513 - 04/08/03 08:34 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)


Sorry, my previous post wasn't very clear. I am wondering about the dry ice method. Do the mushrooms need to be fan dried before you put them in a jar with dry ice or can you use fresh mushrooms? Thanks.

You're going to want to dry the fruits before placing them in a jar with dry ice. The reason you use dry ice is to get rid of the oxygen in the jar, keeping the fruits from oxidizing. You will want to wait for the dry ice to 'melt', releasing CO2 and pushing out regular atmospheric gas before sealing the jar. If you put dry ice in a jar and seal it right away, it will explode. This procedure is best used for long term storage, where you won't be opening and closing the jar very often.

My friend says that the best results are obtained when you freeze cracker-dry mushrooms. If they're not cracker-dry, they get soggy and nasty when they thaw. To get them cracker-dry, put them in a sealed container with some DampRid or a similar desiccant for a few days before freezing.

Is this even worth the hasle for small quantities?

If you want to preserve a lb or something... maybe.

but with what can be fited in a jar...... too much trouble. in my opinion.

Just dry them real good , and seal in ziplock,,, suck out the air.
