Drying

Hey guys, I was wondering if there is any problems with hanging mushrooms to dry? I'm hanging them on a grid with the cap holding them up, I wanna make sure the water isn't being pulled through the stem, thus reducing potency. Also can you bake mushrooms to dry them?

have a fan constantly blow on them for at least 24 hours (depends on the humidity where you live on how long to fan)

that is how I always do it.... and they are completely dried in 24 hours for me..

I just noticed, is that a Desiccant at the bottom?

if so then you are good to go, all is well...

you could bake them but it will bake all the potency out, fan drying at low temps is best.

and you could hang them but when they dry they will shrink, and they could fall if they aren't secure.

"i wanna make sure the water isn't being pulled through the stem, thus reducing potency"
mushrooms are all water ( 90% ) so water is going to get pulled out no matter how you dry them.
