Dyhydrated mushrooms

Post by Icefever »

Popped into Booker yesterday for pork to start another batch of curing off, in the veg section they have a corner for sale stuff. I spotted mushrooms & a £1 per tray...the big trays :lol:

Image

Finished up with 3 trays, 2 button & 1 field, when back home the dehydrator was set up, took me about 35/ 40mins to slice enough to fill all 6 sections and away it went.

Image

Checked them after 7 hours and left them for another 1 hour, turn the machine off as I went to noddy land.

This morning filled a couple of large bags with the dried results, there's enough to do a 2nd load & for me to cook a nice Pancetta & mushroom risotto tomorrow.. ;)

Cheers....I love doing stuff like this, we waste so much, not just what we can buy in a shop. We forage what we can, fruit from the hedgerows. We do jams & chutneys, I find it gives you a good feeling sitting to eat & drink what you have made yourself. I'm making strawberry jam tomorrow...and hope to do a strip run?? fingers crossed.
Gaza....Ice you are such a Fungi to be with. :lol: :lol:

Gaza if I was close enough to you I would kick your shin.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am fortunate enough to have Shaggy Parrasol mushrooms poke their heads up, maybe twice a year.
If I have no immediate use, then they are dried.

I now have no time for the Psilocybes and Aminata of my younger days. ;)

That would make brilliant bread!

Spent brewing grain, dehydrated and then blitz into flour.

Really is something special.

I see the temp is 70c .. Thinking... this must be possible to do this in a fan oven, with the door cracked?

You can do it in an oven, the temp can be nearer 50c....I just did it at 70c because of a time limit....

I simp'ly slice and lay them out on trays.
Indoors.
In Scotland.
Maybe flip the next day.
Carrtots,Parsnip,Celery, Strawberry, etc
Just about anything.
I have 20 year old parsnip slices which when re-hydrated overnight you would not distinguish from fresh.

You don't need fancy gear or practices to preserve food by drying, nature provides in the summer.

I have seen fish being dried on top of walls in Africa.
I dried a whole stalk of Bananas on the way back from the Carribean, not to the artificial, crunchy yellow chip version, but the brown slightly rubbery version that you see sometimes in health food shops,- no added chemicals.

Because I love all of the almighty's vegetables.
If it is edible, I probably eat it. :)

One day I may proffer you a parsnip, cooked in the way intended, and you may see the light. :)
Let's get through lockdown first. :lol:

👍

They are supposed to be have diarrhetic effect. Something I ought to do careful of, of late.
Parsnip soup, sausage and parsnip bake followed by parsnip ice cream washed down with parsnip wine might be a step tooo far. 😂😂😂

You need to widen your social circle.
Too many old wives in your current one it seems. :)
But happy that you have left the smallest room. :lol:
