Much to my surprise, I ended up with a large amount of free mushrooms this weekend. Thinking ahead to winter, I decided to go ahead and dehydrate them to use in soups later on.
If you have never dehydrated mushrooms before, let me tell you. It was a piece of cake. Seriously, a trained monkey could do it.
All you need to do is rinse off the mushrooms, pat them dry, and slice about 1/4″ thick.
Then pull out your dehydrator, place the sliced mushrooms on trays, and turn the food dehydrator on to 125 degrees. Come back 6 hours later, remove the dehydrator lid and let the mushrooms cool down for about 15- 20 minutes.
Pack in canning jars and store in a dark pantry until you are ready to use them.
Now how easy was that? See, I told you a trained monkey could do it.
