How to Dehydrate Portabello Mushrooms

Portabell0 Mushroom

I was given a large bag of portabello mushrooms this week. I wanted to make soup but I was out of heavy cream to make it. Dehydrating the mushrooms would keep them from going bad too soon. I’m only paid once a month so I had to wait for payday to buy my heavy cream.

 

Meanwhile, I found a recipe that can swap out fresh for fried mushrooms. Now when I’m able to get milk, butter, and heavy cream I can make mushroom soup. But for now, I can use mushroom pieces in omelets, stews, and soups to add that extra yum factor.
