    #1756667 - 07/28/03 05:31 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

What's the best way to dry shrooms?

Desiccant?
Epsom Salt?
Silica Gel Flower Drying Crystals?

you MUST fan dry first.

Any of those desiccants you suggested will do nicely, just make sure they don't touch the fruits.

For $40 SWIM got a food dehydrator at walmart with different temperature settings. Thank goodness, as SWIM's first harvest came in better than expected and he could never have handled it all with the DampRid he'd bought.

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

Fan dry FIRST. I lost a small find of shrooms by throwing them straight into the dessicant chamber. They were quite wet also, and a few days later, mold. *shakes head* Lucky it was only about 8 shrooms, no more.
Even fan drying for an hour or so before throwing into the dessicant chamber works really well. However, for huge finds, you may want to throughly fan dry it for a bit longer.

What's wrong with just leaving them on a piece of paper overnight?

If you don't dry them quickly enough they may get moldy.

Eating moldy anything = bad idea.

SWIM gets great results by just tossing shrooms on a piece of cardboard on his desk, which is under a ceiling fan.  A day later, they're properly shrivelled, and into the dessicant chamber they go.  :smile:

Would a computer's casefan be sufficient?

Sure, unless you have a huge crop. You just need to keep the air over them moving.

I left some mushrooms I found outside sitting in my car's glovebox, which was damn hot, considering the air conditioner burns my face when I first turn on my car....

Anyway, the shrooms dried fine...without molding. Will this be sufficient for future crops?

Box fan with a piece of window screen on it....put it on something so it's not right on the floor. Lots of airflow, works great (or so I heard).

Here's a pic.............

Dry them on a fan like henryp showed you.
Then if they are still bendy, put them in a small tub, get a cup of DAMPRID, and some eggcrate. Leave 'em in there for a few days... presto, cracker dry.
