Problem with storage
    #2642061 - 05/05/04 04:51 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm having a problem with storing mushrooms. I fan dry all my mushrooms for 2-3 days then i place them in a ziplock bag with silica packets. But when i took some out today (roughly in the bag for a week or so) they were slightly damp. Is this from not drying all they way or are they pulling the moisture out of the air? Everyone says that fan drying should be good enough, i have some damp rid but haven't used it yet. ANy suggestions on how to store them?

My friend does the same thing, but minus the silica packs. Im pretty sure that maybe they werent fully dry when you fanned them. Try taking a knife and slicing the stem down the middle, long ways, then openining it up a bit, then fan drying for a couple days...that would ensure that they are cripsy.
