Dried Golden Chanterelles

The golden chanterelles are wild mushrooms and therefore do not come from a regulated cultivation. They were collected in the northern forests of Spain and then dried.

Why are dried mushrooms so expensive in relative terms and are there any advantages at all?
Fresh mushrooms contain a lot of water and lose up to 90% of their weight during drying. This justifies the higher price of dried mushrooms compared to fresh mushrooms. But don’t worry. The dried mushrooms swell to almost their conventional size during soaking and both their taste and consistency remain almost unchanged. One of the biggest advantages of dried mushrooms is their shelf life. If stored correctly, sufficiently dried mushrooms can be kept for several years without any noticeable loss of quality. It is important for the shelf life that the mushrooms are stored in an airtight container.
