Drying mushrooms on a road trip, please help...
    #4180818 - 05/16/05 02:17 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hello all,
*This is all hypothetical and ficticious.

Hypothetically Someone I know is fortunate enough that they will be taking a road trip with some good mates from Minnesota down through Georgia and finally to Florida some time in July.

I wasnt sure where to post this, but this seemed to be the best place.

They plan to do a stupendous amount of mushroom hunting while down there, both GA and FL, thats kind of a huge motivation for these destinations.

My predicament/question is as follows:
They will most likely be hopping from hotel to hotel in Florida. They would appreciate it very much if ya'll could recommend the most superior way to dry the mushrooms for preservation on the Journey Home. Keep in mind that while down there the car will be very hot and They would not wish to degrade the potency anymore than is absolutely neccessary under the given circumstances. They have read in to dessicants a bit and are leaning towards them right now. They have not checked in to dehyrdrators but would be willing to put forth the money, as mushrooms, especially good ones are hard to come by here in MN and you dont know where theyve been. Anyways, They would be most interested in finding ways to get these things dry, preferably during the time spent in the hotel rooms where the temps will remain moderate and not sweltering as in the car.

*Please do not flame them for attempting to transport large quantities of Mushrooms across many state lines over about 1300 miles. They understand the risk, They have some experience in those matters, so Unless you think it's something they really should know, please, no need for bad vibes.

I appreciate any help or advice or constructive criticism. Hope you all enjoy the coming season.

Why would you say such a thing. He stated "They would appreciate it very much if ya'll could recommend the most superior way to dry the mushrooms for preservation on the Journey Home."
Everyone knows a food dehydrator is best for this.

because i didn't read his post very carefully

anyway, it's only slightly more versatile in that in case they are NOT in hotel rooms when they need to dry they can still achieve -some- drying

reading it again, you're probably right, sorry.

I'd say, I hope you know One mushroom from the next and no, not all mushrooms that bruise blue are OK to eat, Yea, you'll probably Die if you don't know what you're doing and i'd say...go for the dehydrator...Way more efficent...

I would also suggest getting a dehydrator, but make sure you dry them
until they are cracker dry.  This will take several hours.  Then seal them
as air tight as possible in a ziplock, or if possible a vaccum sealer would
be even better.  :thumbup:

Then put them in a waterproof container inside a cooler
with ice during the trip.  When you get back, you should have some well
preserved shroomies.  :tongue:

But I also agree with Gnostic on making for damn
sure you know what mushrooms you are picking.  Make sure you bring a
camera to get some pics before you pick them.  People on this site can
really help with ID if you have some visual proof.  Dried up shrooms are not
as easy to tell.

if it were me i would get a cooler like a six pack cooler and a tuperware container that fits in and leaves a lil room and get some freezer packs to put in the cooler to keep it cool (not ice due to the extra moisture as it melts) and go to your local wal-mart or whatnot and get some damp rid and a wire rack like a cooling rack for kookies from like the dollar store or walmart put about a 1" layer of damp rid on the bottom of your tuperware container and then bend the cooling rack so it is above/not touching the damp rid. and every night when u go to the hotel if it has a fridge put the freezer pack in the freezer for the next day, or just buy a cooler that plugs into the cigeret lighter. but if u find some big fat juicy mushies cut them down the middle to speed up drying time.

A box fan always dries mine up real fast but nothing like 2 hours so go with the dehydrator if you can afford it :laugh:

I would get dissicant and a dehydrater. It seems like they are going to get alot, so while some mushies are in the dehydrater put the other ones over the dissicant. Also Get a car adapter so you can dry on the go.

Yeah they have those power converters that have 120v outlets on them. Be careful doing that though....

well if it was me i would buy some damprid and a rubbermaid tub. go out and pick your mushrooms, go back to the hotel set up the damprid and rubbermaid tub anddrop your mushrooms in the bin and dry on the way home in the trunk.

Which is why we dont turn the heat off.

Get a dehydrator to use at the hotels and a small rubbermaid with desiccant, or a bunch of coffee filters filled with desiccant for when your traveling. Dehydrator will dry shrooms quick as hell though so the desiccant will just be for back up in case you dont have the 4-16 hours to wait around.

i would hardly reccomend using a dehydrator on the road.
watch out even when you're dehydrating in the hotel, too.
when you have an amer. harvest with the minimum tray capacity packed,
it will make an entire apartment reak like fungus.
incense will help.

is your trip for the sole purpose of hunting?
if so, i hope you guys don't dissapoint yourselves.

>it will make an entire apartment reak like fungus.

If you stick it in a closet, 1 foot from the door wont smell like fungus, even with half a pound (dry, which would be 5 pounds wet and 4 times the minimum tray capacity) on it.
