Dehydrated mushrooms are a must in your pantry. They are easy to prep, and rehydrate perfectly in soups, stews, and chowders back to their original juicy glory. Dehydrated mushrooms last for years when stored properly too! You can throw them into most recipes. Baking chicken in the oven? Throw the mushrooms in the bottom of the baking sheet and add a quarter inch of water, or a little balsamic and wine, and presto!
A properly dehydrated mushroom slice will “click” when dropped on the table, and can be easily snapped in half. If yours do not feel this way, just put them back in the dehydrator for a few more hours!
