How to dry mushrooms at home
Clean mushrooms that are supposed to be dried (do not wash them), cut large parts of the mushrooms: caps into slices, legs – into thin strips. Strung sliced mushrooms on a thread: the caps should go separately from legs, as they dry quicker.
Hang threads with mushrooms in a dry sunny place distantly from each other. Cover with cheesecloth to protect from insects. Keep in the sun for 7-9 days, removing the finished dried mushrooms in a jar. Store in glass jars in a dark dry place. You may store mushrooms up to 5 years.
