Regarding oxidation, potency & storage
    #4141180 - 05/06/05 09:22 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I've only recently learned that bluing/oxidation affects the potency of the final product - i've always dried my little fella's in a food dehydrator (w/ heating element removed) but i've been slicing them to expose more surface area (thus quicker drying time) and obvious bluing occurs - am i losing much potency? guess it's better to dry them whole instead, huh? i'm just concerned about the middle of the shroom getting dry enough so it doesn't go bad.

any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Tripple M

Yes, slicing the shrooms will both increase the rate of drying and the rate of chemical degradation.

How much will degrade is the question... My concern would be over long term storage. On a short term, if you plan to eat them within the month or 2, i wouldn't be concerned.

Keep your dried mushies in a series of plastic bags (one inside another inside another) in the freezer to limit airflow.
