I'm wanting to turn artist conk into powder. How should I dehydrate it for grinding in my cornmeal grinder? I tried 6 hours at 180 in the oven, and it's still moist to the touch.
As the generic simple answer that works for most mushrooms:
- Cut them in cubes of 1 cm³ (0.061 inch³)
- Put them on parchment paper in your oven at 110°C (230°F)
- for 1 hour (½ Shí).
doesn't seem to work on this particular mushroom, you'll need special (read: expensive) equipment to be able to dry these before being able to grind them to powder and that is:
Note: Or bring a few six packs to someone owning this equipment already and drink the beers while waiting for the process to finish
