Drying/Epsom Salt
    #2953767 - 08/01/04 10:45 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I`m having a hard time finding the guide to drying mushies with epsom salt. Can anyone point me into the right direction? I read you bake it or something. Not sure. Thx

Just put it into a baking dish and let it sit in the oven on about 300deg for an hour or so and that should dry it out really well. From there you make yourself a desiccant chamber out of any sealable container that suites the size that you need. IMO a big tupperware bowl with a layer of epsom salt on the bottom should do the trick nicely. Then you put in a piece of screen or a smaller container that will fit into the larger one in on top of the salt. Either way the idea is to keep the shrooms from touching the salt. If you use screen you'll have to rig up something to hold it up off the salt an inch or so,like shot glasses or something. Like I said a smaller bowl will work also,just so long as you can get it into the other one and still get the lid on it. Once the epsom salt gets saturated to the point that it doesnt want to absorb any more water just put it back into the oven again and your good to go. Dont forget to fan dry the fruits for a day or so first to remove most of the water. Putting them into the desiccant chamber while they are fresh is asking for mold or rotting shrooms.

Good Luck!

Fresh epsom salts should be good to go! :wink: The process of manufacturing epsom salts renders it nearly totally dry unless it's been sitting open. It won't hurt to bake it first either but for the most part it's very dry already. It's the same with silica gel some will turn colors when enough moisture has been absorbed, you can tell when it's wet (very obvious).
