drying mushrooms
    #8792885 - 08/18/08 11:23 PM (9 years, 9 months ago)

I have read many methods to drying it seems that the easiest and cheapest would be to use a desiccant but where i live i cant find any so i was wondering if there were any cheap alternatives, maybe salt or something?

I fan dry for 24 hours, then use the desiccant to finish the job. This way, the fan blows a good amount of the water off them, and dessiccant finishes getting them cracker dry fast. If you go from start to finish drying shrooms with dessiccant, you will go through A LOT of it.

If you are unable to nab dessiccant, fan drying works, just takes longer to get them bone dry (which you absolutely want). You should be able to find it at menards or home depot in the clean-up isle - ask for Damp-Rid, that is the most common form, at least in my area.

Do a Google search for home made desiccant.  It looks like baking epsom salts for a few hours at a high temperature can make it into a decent desiccant.  Storing them with powdered milk might work also.  I have never tried any of these methods, though.

From what i hear.... Silica gel could be used for a desiccant...




I've also heard the salt that melts ice works as well, and you won't need to buy 500 bags of beef jerky to get half a cup full :wink:

Damp-Rid is an awesome desicant and it's at just about every home improvement and hardware store I've been in. It's also in many grocery stores and the big box stores.

Home improvement stores will often hid it in the paint dept. It can be used to make a damp closet dry enough to paint. They're also making a closet hanging model for general use too. The refills for that one cut open nicely.

Your desiccant will go many times further if you put the shrooms in front of a fan for a day before letting the desiccant go to work. The fan does most of the work and the desiccant just finishes the job.

i live in colorado...

therefore, i take this big spool of string that we have had together, a large sewing needle, and hang them

to speed it up, run a small fan over them

otherwise, here in co you have no chance or rotting, too dry.

also if you have a lot, a used onion bag and lay them out works great.

just let em dry. i find no need to expend a lot of effort, this is a dry state.

I'd still rather buy beef jerky - the drying progress tastes better!

Wal-mart employees are often oblivious to multi-syllabic words in general. If you are in there again, check cleaning supplies (probably in the grocery area if your Wal-Mart is Super) thoroughly, then paint, then the rest of the hardware are. You'll probably see stuff to kill mold somewhere - it might be next to that. If all else fails, look for closet organizers/accessories. Sometimes it hides there.
