Drying Cauliflower Mushrooms ?
    #2044952 - 10/26/03 04:30 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Sorry all for the shameless cross post but I need a quick answer and I thought some of you guys might know !  :smile:

I've found some huge Sparassis crispa specimens and was wondering if I could preserve them by drying ? I've searched google but didn't find much on the subject.

Fan Drying is what i do. Get a pretty powerful fan and have the mushrooms on a towel or something like that and blow on them for a while. Should get pretty dry.

Since you're not looking to keep any active goodies with this mushroom, stick them in the oven at 150 for about 3 hours and that should do the trick. This way they won't be stale.

Do they retain their flavour and texture well once dried ? I've tried drying other edibles I've found and they were a complete disaster !

I've dried them out before by doing this:

1) Slice them down to 1/2" slices, clean them.
2) Place on a fan, for about 1-2 days, depending on the humidity in the air.
3) You can make them crispy dry by putting them near an oven.
