Drying mushrooms
    #3091642 - 09/04/04 04:25 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Can you dry mushrooms in a semi-humid environment like tennessee by setting them in front of a fan for a few days? Also, what would happen if you dried mushrooms improperly and ate them? Thanks!

I'd use dessicant. If you didn't dry them and ate them it would take approximently 10 times as much to trip just as hard. Like 1 gram dry to 10 grams wet.

No, i meant if you dried them improperly, like just put them in a bag and left them there until you ate them. Or if you didn't use a dessicant and just left them sitting on your counter.

yes, dry them in front of a fan for a few days and then try a dessicant to finish them off...

Even just fan drying will preserve them a lot longer than if they were fresh.

Fan drying can get them cracker dry if you live where there is low humidity.

I have said this before. I put my shrooms in front of a small space heater to dry them. I can dry many many oz's in 4-5 hours.

Me and my friends have done several experiments eating both shrooms dried in front of heater and shrooms fan dried then put into a dessicant. We could never tell the difference in potency.

Me I just don't find all the trouble of a dessicant chamber worth the trouble.

A food dehydrator was the greatest investment I ever made. And no, it doesn't ruin anything.

If your looking to make a big or cheap drying unit here is what I found works great.

Get some bread racks. Get the kind that are just plastic trays with solid (~2-3 inches high) rim around the outside. Get the kind that will form a solid column, not the ones that have one side with a lower rim. Then stack a few together and mount a fan on top. Place some screening on the bottom one so that your shrooms don't fall through. You'll have to put it on some bricks or boards or build some sort of base so the air can flow out.

Now you have an expandable drying unit.

I called mine the "Tornado 2000".

Box fan = ~$10
bread racks = free (stores convienlently place them out back for easy pickup at night)

I don't advise anyone to steal them, but I haven't ever seen them for sale. I used to just take them back in the day, but now I'm not mobile enough to do that anymore, so I would probably just ask the store manager if I needed any again. I think the bread man actually supplies them, so you might have to ask the manager to get a cost from him.
