Today a jeweler I use gave my wife some dehydrated morels when she picked up a ring he repaired. Anyone know how to bring these back to life? Or do you use them dried? Thanks

Soak in a bowl of water for an hour and they will be as close to fresh as you will get. We are still using dried morels from 5+ years ago.

Just soak them in warm water for 15 min, they will be good to go. I fill a bowl, put the shrooms in there with a wet paper towel on top to keep the floaters damp.

Save the water they are soaked in, use it as additive to a sauce, gravy, baked dish , anything . Good stuff.

How do you store those for 5 years?

Good call. There will probably be some dirt, bug parts, etc. that came off the shrooms on the bottom of your soaking bowl, so don't pour the whole thing into whatever it is that you're cooking

I re-hydrate in milk so I can use the soaking liquid in my sauce

I would put mine in Boling water for 3-4 minutes and they will not expand to original size but will be bigger than what they are now.

In a brown paper bag in our pantry. I suppose I will soon be told that's not possible. Lol

Just saw your post, I have a real thang , an aversion, to any kind of nasties like that …I rinse the shrooms as soon as I get them inside, then dry them well . Never have any bad crawly nasties on them, ever . By the time they are dried out and ready for storage, there are no critters or dirt on them at all.

Store them in a glass container for months. When I do soak them , they are cleaner than store bought shrooms. grin

Total accident, I left some morals , set on the refrigerator rack, not a glass one but a rack, air could flow around them.

Frost free refrigerator , and forgot about them.
They were perfectly dried , hard as a rock.
Still have some in a Ziploc bag, but will start using canning jars for storage.
As bags can be weak if moved around  or bugs/ mice find them.
