preserving chanterelles

Asked October 3, 2019, 1:39 PM EDT

i usually dry fry and freeze chanterelles. It's time consuming but the results are good. I have a large dehydrator. If I dehydrate chanterelles will they retain their flavor?

Drying mushrooms is a great option for preserving mushrooms. Recommended to slice to ½” thick and dry at 120F until crisp.

Here is an extension publication that provides some additional ideas for preserving mushrooms, including canning, pickling, and freezing:https://extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/default/files/documents/8836/sp50919preservingmushrooms.pdf

Enjoy your mushrooms!
