drying question
    #3277312 - 10/25/04 11:45 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

will mushrooms lose strength by just putting them on newspaper on top of a refrigerator and letting them air dry with a small fan next them. ive read all the other ways like using desicants and putting then in a low heat oven, but i was wondering if anyone has had success just doing this or am i waisting my find.

low heat, like in a food dehydrator is okay. Those are around 90 degrees. I've heard of lots of people using them for drying with no difference in potency. gl

they won't loose strength. just don't let them get hotter than 106 degrees i believe. the warmer the air the more humidity it can hold and it will suck the water out of the mushrooms faster. i've never used an oven, but have used a food dehydrator before. best thing to do is fan dry for 24 hours, then disicant dry.
