Hi all, I got into mushroom searching with my boyfriend 5 years ago but just got lucky and found a couple spots we go back to every year and grab a couple handfuls. Could you give me any pointers on hunting this year. (My boyfriend works out of state and I still want to go.) Also, If I do find any how do you cook them? Do any of you sell them if you find a large amount? We have a dehydrator, do you recommend using one? How do you preserve yours?
Thanks!!!! BTW I live south of the river and haven't seen any yet!

Before I put them in the jar I let them sit for about 6 to 8 hours and deydrate for another hour or so, nothing worse then opening your jar in the middle of winter and all ya got is mold, Been there, done it, very sad day that was.

I looked again today no such luck. Although I found the top of one very very small and looked like insects were eating them away. How do you clean yours?

The dehydrator has a setting for schrooms and veggie. It's the lowest setting 95degrees I think. Not by it rt now. And as for reconstitution. Warm water not past 3 or 4 on the stove. And Heaven for bid don't throw away the broth you get when bringing them back to life. It's morel stock. Then make some frenck onion soup. And hang on to your taste buds buds yummy!

As soon as this one dies that will be the way to go, I've been looking, I thought after 20 some years this one would but still going sometime a little slower then a newer model but so am I. If we got replaced cuz we were old I wouldn't be here either, lol
