Quick question / suggestion for preservation
    #4646134 - 09/11/05 03:32 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

If a tek like "the puerto method of preservation" works for preserving mushrooms, couldn't one place one's mushrooms in the oven at 100 degrees (drying them to a somewhat crispy texture), then pack them in a vacuum-sealed bag? (i.e. FoodSaver) ?

Thanks!

That wouldn't be recommended. What you can do and what i do is put them on a plate and wrap them in a black t-shirt and put under a heat source (Grow Lamp, Small heater on lowest setting, by a window etc..)

two problems. the first being that heat is not recommended for use in drying mushrooms, as it causes a loss in potency, though at a temp of 100 degrees, i'm sure it would be negligible. the second problem is that most ovens' coldest temperature is 150 degrees. vacuum sealed is awesome, though.

use a dehydrator. or make a makeshift non-electric dehydrator by laying down two bricks then a grill rack, then another set of bricks and another grill rack, throw a black cloth over the entire thing and let sit in the sun for 24 hours.

my makeshift glove box has a computer fan built into the side and I just set my shit to dry w/ that on it for 2 days and it's dry as it can get. but is that all that is required to preserve them? I thought cold storage or something?

Cold storage is a plus, but putting them into a germ filled fridge is not. I like to use honey myself :laugh:.
