Drying Morel Mushrooms

You scored, found a spot with a mother load of morels, good job. But what do you do with all your mushrooms? Eat as many as you can and dry the rest. We used a dehydrator and it worked great. I’ve heard of drying them in the windshield of the truck. I’ve also heard morels absorb Vitamin D when sun dried. Alex said “dry the shit out of them. Can’t get too dry.”

Cut morels in half if too big to stack in dehydrator.

Set at 125 for 7 hours.

  1. Something left out of this post, which I am certain Alex would tell you, is that dried and reconstituted morels have better flavor than fresh. Kind of like salt cod.
