drying: dessicant ratios
    #2633439 - 05/03/04 07:59 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I'm stuck using silica right now and was wondering how much to use per x amount of mushrooms without having to redry the silica until after the mushroom gets cracker. ( as I live outdoors and need to go to a friend's house to dry the crystals.)
also what is the % of water weight retention?

Air dry them with a fan then throw them in a bag with the dessicant to get the cracker dry.

Don't use silica for drying purposes. Use salts.

Read this page for clarification.

The average P.C. fruit is 92% water. For estimation purposes divide wet by 10 to determine dry weight.
