Drying question
    #3249981 - 10/13/04 12:56 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Was wondering if anyone had any success drying in airtight containers, will this keep the mushrooms fresh rather than dry them out?

Here is an image of the underbed storage box i have prepared to dry:

Lined with newspaper.

Do you think adding a half full shot glass of silica desiccant beads would help absorb the moisture in a box of this size?

Thanks in advance for any replies  :rasta:

I don't think airtight containers is a good idea until they are actually bone dry, I imagine they'd just rot.

When they are fresh, I keep them in greaseproof paper bags in the fridge.

I haven't stored any dry ones yet, they haven't been around that long yet before they get munched :wink:

yeah, i think i will have the shrooms in the underbed container without the top on, and with the haul of cyans i am harvesting tomorrow i think i will have enough to lay on top of the lid also.  :eyemouth:
