Today while at the grocery store I stumbled upon a mushroom jackpot! Organic shiitake mushrooms had been marked $3.00 off making the packages 1.29. And they were sliced too! Double jackpot! I was greedy and grabbed all they had.
Once home, I rinsed them and tossed them in the dehydrator.
A short time later I had 2 quarts of dried shiitakes. For long term storage I put in quart jars and vacuum sealed them.
