Ways to dry mushroom
Drying mushrooms is a great way to preserve them for later use. It’s easy to do and requires no special equipment. Dried mushrooms are usually used in soups, stews, sauces, and other dishes where moisture is undesirable. Air drying Place dried mushrooms in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place the pan in a warm area about 70 degrees away from direct sunlight. Check every day or two and remove any moldy or discolored pieces. After about 2 weeks, the mushrooms should be ready to eat. Oven drying Preheat oven to 150 degrees F. Spread dried mushrooms in a single even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crisp and brittle, about 1 hour. Cool completely before using. Dehydrating Spread dried mushrooms in a single evenly spaced layer on a dehydrator tray. Set the dehydrator to 140 degrees F and leave overnight. Remove the mushrooms from the dehydrator and let cool completely. Store in airtight containers.

Dehydrated mushrooms are great for making soups, sauces, and other dishes. To store dried mushrooms, place them in an airtight container and keep them away from direct sunlight.
How to rehydrate mushroom
To rehydrate dried mushrooms, soak them in hot water until they become soft. Then drain them well and chop into pieces.
In conclusion, the air will help dry the mushrooms faster than the oven, and the oven will dry the mushrooms faster than the dehydrator. It is best to use a combination of all three methods, drying the mushrooms in the air for a few days to get rid of excess moisture, then using the oven to finish off, and then placing the mushrooms in the dehydrator to dry them completely.
