Dehydrating Mushrooms

It’s that time again – mushrooms are on sale at ALDI!  I found them for 79 cents at my local store and picked up 3 packages.  Too often, I buy mushrooms and before I can use them all, they spoil.  However, I’ve had really good success dehydrating them in the past, so I decided to get some extras and add them to the food storage pantry.

After wiping any dirt off with a damp papertowel, I sliced the mushrooms into about 1/2-inch slices and laid them in the dehydrator.  I set it at 135 degrees.
