those who use silica gel crystals...
    #589424 - 03/25/02 11:07 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

i picked up some silica gel crystals today at a crafts and flowers shop. the bucket says to lay flowers on top the the silica and poor more silica over them. now i know this is not a good idea to do with mushies. is this used the same way as any other dissicants? i ussually use damp-rid but it cant be reused as well.

shall i put some mesh over the silica and lay the mushies down? or is this shit used differently?

Yes. Or a paper towel. Make sure to close the container tightly afterwards. And to pre-dry the mushrooms using a fan.

yeah Im using a fan to pre-dry, the fan gets them near cracker dry. its the inside of the stems that have the last bit of moisture. I have split them with a blade, to help dry them out. thanks Anno

After fan drying untill as dry as possible, I place the shrooms into an open baggie that has the top rolled back to help keep it open. Then I place the baggie into a container, on top of a screen over the crystals. This not only totally dries them the rest of the way, but works well for long term storage.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Nothing preserves like a preserve jar!

After drying the shrooms, put them in a canning jar with a small pac of silica gel taped to the underside of the lid.
