Help with drying wild mushrooms in my home oven

magiesmom | Oct 6, 2011 06:22 AM

I have access to a lot of wonderful hen of the woods mushrooms and wish to dry them, something new to me. People I have talked to and recipes I have found all indicate drying at around 140.
But my oven doesn't go below 170, so I am concerned this will burn, rather than dry them.
What do you think? Do you have experience with this?
I don't want to ruin 2 lbs of gorgeous mushrooms, but I sure would love having them dried.
