Dehydrator Method

How do you dry morel mushrooms using a dehydrator? It is really easy to do and they keep well too so you can enjoy them year-round.

Pick the same size morels to be dried on each level. The smaller ones will come out first, so you may want to put the tray on top. Or you may just slice them so they are approximately the same in size. Make sure they are clean and dry (you may roll them in a paper towel to get the water out of the crevices).

Arrange on the dehydrator tray like you would for other food; don't let the pieces touch each other. Dry at approximately 125 degrees until crispy - 4 hours for small pieces and up to 8 hours for large pieces.

Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight glass jar.


To use them year-round, just pour boiling water over them and let them soak for 15 to 30 minutes. You can put them directly in soups or stews without doing this.


Oven Method

Preheat your oven no higher than 150 to 175 degrees. Place the cleaned morels on the baking tray and let dry for 2 to 3 hours. Open the oven door and let mushrooms cool completely. Then store in an airtight jar.

Shelf Life of Dried Morel Mushrooms

Some folks keep them for years, but I would be certain to check them every couple of months for mold or discolorations. Use them just as you would fresh morel mushrooms. Enjoy!

1-1/2 ounces of dried mushrooms = 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
