How to dry 'shrooms
    #4239140 - 05/31/05 09:20 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

As most of you are probably aware, the sale of fresh mushrooms will soon be banned in the UK.
I was planning to get some in for a weekend in August, and that now seems like it might be difficult, so I was thinking of buying some now and then drying them to take in August. Has anybody got any drying tips so the shrooms won't lose their potency? I have assumed that freezing them isn't an option, or am I wrong?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

I've made a shoe box with a laval lamp bulb inserted in the side and a 12 volt fan cut into the front with some air holes, that way i can dry shrooms easily enough, once bone dry store in an airtight container with some "air drying" stuff forgot the name sorry...

Go to a crafts store. Buy some silica. Place in the bottom of a medium to large tupperware (about half an inch high). Put a shirt over the silica. put mushrooms on shirt, seal the tupperware, wait 2-3 days(until shrooms are rock hard). Get a sock, fill it up with about 2-3 inches of silica. Tie the sock. Put it in the bottom of a quart jar. Put your dried mushies on top of it. Close jar and put in fridge.

CaCl from B&Q, sold as a room dehumidifier in some orange and white product, whatever. One ?3ish bag will do for a while I guess. Cut the shrooms lengthways and lay them out, put a fan on them for a few days. DO NOT seal them up before theyre VERY dry, or theyll get so fucking wet really fast.

When really dry, just a bit spongy and flexible still, put them in a tub which will fit inside a bigger tub. put the CaCl in the base of the larger container, and rest the smaller one on top of the CaCl layer. Seal the big tub but not the small one, so the shrooms have air circulation to the desiccant.

You could use a different desiccant chamber set-up to this if you can think of one you could use

good luck dude.

check shroombay.co.uk some of the auctions and links are cheap, like ?70 for a kilo
