Q.

What’s the best way to dry chanterelle mushrooms?

A.

The best way to dry fresh wild mushrooms is by using a dehydrator machine.  If you don’t have one already, they’re surprisingly affordable.  Careful shoppers can find good models for around $50.

You’ll find full instructions for drying mushrooms (as well as freezing and canning them) in our post How to Preserve and Store Fresh Mushrooms.  Just keep in mind that dried chanterelle mushrooms can reconstitute “woody,” so they’re a better choice for pureeing into soups and sauces rather than rehydrating & cooking as you would fresh.
