vacuum drying

Someone here had mentioned vacuum drying, and that it can allow you to get mushrooms cracker dry while retaining their fresh size/appearance

Would one of these dryers from myco supply be able to do this?

Also, would a dryer like this be able to get shrooms cracker dry?

that is what it seems to be for. I've never heard of doing this, I guess just because it never really been worth it to anyone. I'm a little uncertain how anything will cracker dry in a vacuum, I know those dont make perfect ones.

Remember, those are vacuum preservers, not dryers. 

Whats the difference? 

A vacuum dryer will suck out moisture and air to dry your fruits.  A preserver maintains an environment for an already dried fruit. 

The best way to use our vacuum preservers is simple.

1. Get your fresh mushrooms, lay them out on a screen or cookie tray and have a fan blow on them for 24 hours.  The constantly circulating air will remove most of the water from the mushrooms.

2. Remove the mushrooms from their tray and place them in an airtight container (like a tupperware container) with some form of dessicant for another 24 hours.

3. Remove the mushrooms from the airtight container and place them in the vacuum preserver forever :smile:  Actually you could put a small amount of desicant at the bottom of the vacuum preserver, after doing steps 1 + 2, and then seal the vacuum. 

If you have any other questions feel free to ask or PM me.
