dehydrator, oven, air fryer
Prepare the mushrooms for the dehydrator by washing and chopping them into your desired size.
Drying mushrooms in the oven is a great option if you don’t have a dehydrator!
Prep the mushrooms by washing, removing the stem, and blotting dry.
Arrange the diced/sliced mushrooms in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet or line your cookie sheet with a jerky mat to elevate it and allow for a bit more airflow.
Place the mushrooms in the oven at the temperature outlined in the article for around three hours or until fully dry. Size and thickness of the peppers that you are dehydrating.
Drying mushrooms in an air fryer is a great option, especially for smaller amounts. This process takes considerably less time than using a dehydrator because of the circulating air.
Arrange the mushrooms in a single layer in your air fryer basket. I use jerky mats for SO many things in the kitchen including anytime I am dehydrating small pieces of produce in my air fryer.
I love to store my dried mushrooms in mason jars or other glass jars- they are always handy and look beautiful in my pantry or on my cold room shelves. Alternately, you can vacuum seal them or keep them in a zippered bag with the air squeezed out!
