Should this work for storing dried mushrooms?
    #24399379 - 06/12/17 02:10 PM (3 years, 10 months ago)

I've got my first harvest in the dehydrator and am thinking ahead to how I want to store these. My goal is to keep them for up to 2 years.

Once cracker-dry, I will put the dried shrooms in a mason jar and I have a vacuum sealer jar lid attachment I can use to vacuum the air out. As I harvest and dry more mushrooms I'll just repeat the process (re-using and sealing the same jar).

My main question is, do I need to include a desiccant or oxygen absorber in the jar? I have food-grade packets of both. It would seem to me that if all the air is vacuumed out of the jar, there would be no oxygen in there, but maybe it doesn't hurt.

Given that these packets are food-grade, is it important to separate them from the shrooms? e.g, with a some coffee filter paper?

Finally, with this done, do I really need to refrigerate the jar to maximize storage time, or can I keep the jar at room temp? I occasionally let my neighbors use my apartment when I'm gone traveling, so leaving strange things in the fridge might not be the wisest thing for me.

i do ziplocks in mason jars. they last years. no desiccant packs or silly shit.

drying them for 18-24hrs at 160-200f to be 100% cracker dry is more important.
