drying with dehydrator
    #1839301 - 08/22/03 02:03 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

hello there i was just wondering if it is possible to dry the mushrooms with a food dehydrator, or if the heat from one of these will affect the potency at all.
if a dehydrator doesnt work what other kind of similar machine can i use to dry? thx

some of the best shrooms i've ever eaten were dried in a genuine Ronco (tm) food dehydrator (as seen on tv). i'm sure they might have been a little better had i used a heatless method, but in a very humid climate it's very difficult to get them cracker-dry any other way. well, not efficiently anyways. IME damp-gone takes WAY too long. i haven't tried any lab-grade dessicants though...

You're going to hear different things from different people on this subject. Personally, when I did such things, I would lay a fan on its back, blowing upward, fruits on the grill. Elevate the fan so air can flow underneath. Blast them with high airflow till almost-dry, then to a dessicant box.
Even though it was the preferred method, I believe the degree of potency loss using a ronco-type machine is overrated. You'd have to get Anno or someone to show side-by-side TLC/quantitative results to convince me. I've made too many ass kicking simmering stews to think heat is such an enemy. What *does* seem to make a difference is how quickly the drying is done, especially the initial drying of the outer layers. This is where a little bit of heat may actually be beneficial, especially in a humid area as you described.

I love using a dehydrator for my kitten's mushies...it is marvelous!!  I can't say enough good things about it, really.  It works incredibly fast and the trip I took on those dried mushrooms... *wow!!!* Its hard for me to believe that there was any potency loss at all in those things.  I am a believer in the food dehydrator for drying mushrooms!!!  You won't regret it.  :smile:
