Suggestions for drying magnolia blossoms

meatn3 | Jun 15, 2015 05:17 PM

I want to try my hand at making magnolia bitters this year (recipe link below). After much searching for some blossoms that were (a) reachable for a short person (b)in nice shape (c)away from car exhaust and (d) not in someones garden I finally gathered a few! Washed them off and let them dry fully. Put in a dark well ventilated spot. Arrived home after 5 days out of town to find them covered in mold.

*sigh*

Any ideas on how to successfully do this? I'm considering separating the petals then washing them in vinegar to reduce the chance of mold. Also thinking my dehydrator might be a good method.

Any help is much appreciated!
