Mushrooms

Special care is needed when dehydrating mushrooms; don't wash them first as that will make them too wet ... and they are dehydrated on 2 different temperature settings, see #3 in the instructions, below.

They are used in many recipes: Soups, and added to Stews, Omelets, and as Pizza toppings!

Back in the UK, I loved creamy mushrooms on toast! (I'll have to hunt out that recipe, now that I've had my short trip down memory lane here!) :-)

How To Safely Dehydrate Mushrooms

How To Safely
Dehydrate Mushrooms

  1. Buy them pre-sliced for convenience. If you're using whole ones, gently wipe them with a clean damp cloth first to clean them. That's all you need to do. If whole, slice from the cap top down through the stem, into 3/8" slices.
  2. Arrange your slices on your food dehydrator trays, making sure the slices don't overlap.
  3. SPECIAL NOTE: Turn on your food dehydrator at 90°F for Excalibur dehydrators,
    and 95°F for Nesco dehydrators - for two to three hours THEN set the temperature to 125°F and dry for the remaining time.
  • They will be leathery when fully dried.
  • Drying time: 3 hours at low temperature, then up to 10 hours on higher temperature.
  • Please remember to rotate your trays for even drying.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:

Don't be fooled by the first drying. After conditioning (having dehydrated foods sit around for a day in Ziploc bags on your kitchen counter – this helps disperse any remaining dampness evenly), they may still be too damp for vacuuming packing – so don't be afraid to really dry them out by giving them another go-around in the dehydrator – it's what I usually end up having to do...

Test for excess moisture by squeezing the slices.
