    Been a good fall for mushrooms. Didn’t find one chicken of the woods this year for whatever reason they’ve figured me out. But have found a bunch of hen of the woods or swami we call em around here. Found so many been making jerky. Ah but not long now and we will be itching for them springtime goodiesoh and anyone know what those yellow capped shrooms are? They’ve just started popping heavy and freshies around here.

    Clean and cut into slices. Can use the whole mushroom just make sure core pieces are no more than 1/4” thick or you’ll be waiting forever for dehydrate time. Soak in marinade for about 6 hours then dehydrate as you would normal jerky. My dehydrator which is just a red head plain Jane from bass pro will dry a whole batch in 14 hours. Individual times may vary based on dehydrator so have to check it and adjust. I’d imagine any marinade would work. I typically use 1 1/2 cups orange juice. 1 cup soy sauce. 2 teaspoons ginger. 3 teaspoons molasses. 3 teaspoons of shricha sauce. If you like spicier add more of it. Mix well and then marinate the shrooms in it and dehydrate. Like I said any marinade will do but mines pretty good lol

    It kept saying error message and left out important part of process in the first post. After cleaning and cutting into jerky size pieces boil them for 10 minutes then put into marinade. Sorry that should of been in original post.

    I'm glad you added this, I thought at first you were crazy for not cooking them. I've tried three recipies this year. Its a good way to use up a lot of hens.

    Ya boy, fall mushroom hunting is bananas! Mushrooms are literally everywhere with rain. I found some beautiful boletes last fall. They weren't the prized porcini mushroom (yet) but I got real close.

    Look at these gorgeous mushrooms.
