    #4039025 - 04/11/05 12:25 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Has anyone ever heard of these? Says its used for mushroom preservation and will dry 6 cubic feet in an airtight space..
Seems interesting, and only $25..
Any experience with it?
Its from a supporter..

just buy damprid and put it in an airtight plastig bag with the mushrooms.. same thing.

All a desiccant is is an anhydrous salt that absorbs moisture from the air, some of them will dissolve themselves. Alot cheaper to buy damprid too. like $3 then some plastic baggies and some chicken wire.

you can put this damprid stuff in a bag with fresh mushrooms and it'll dry them all the way?

does it work like that with the desiccant too?

is this a one step process or is air drying beforehand a neccessary step?

are these drying methods resonable for a bulk operation of say, oysters and lion's mane? assuming you couldn't sell all the fresh ones...

I just put fresh ones in with the desiccant, and they get really really dry in there. The salt just sucks up the water like nothing.

for bulk i would air dry before i put them in the desiccant chamber. Thats alot of water in those shrooms and if you have alot of shrooms you need alot of desiccant unless you air dry first. Could also use a food dehydrator. Ive also seen some cool bamboo containers on a fan onetime around here somewhere
