What is the best way to dry mushrooms...
    #5768547 - 06/19/06 05:43 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Ok so I've aquired about 2 pounds of fresh, wet mushrooms (psilocybe cubensis). I want to save some for the winter time when they are impossible to come by. I have searched this site and haven't found an easy, cheap way to dry them out. I do not have a Dehydrator, and do not intend on purchasing one. Your advice is appreciated...PEACE

On a towel infront of a fan, in 2 days your all set.

Dry in front of a fan as started above.. Then try and get them in a canister with some Silica Gel..
2 Lbs wet should yield about 3 Oz. dry..

So if they're in front of a fan for 2 days, i shouldn't have to worry about mold? I do live in very humid conditions

A common method is to run a string through them and hang them up to dry.

You have to worry about mold anywhere. If it's humid it makes it even more likely that they might mold.

Happy mushrooming!

I don't like the fan method.

Desiccant in an airtight container.

Others have posted good advice, but do a search. This comes up at least once a month. I know I've posted this question too. A search will give you more info in drying mushrooms than you ever wanted.
