Drying mushrooms

This is how I once dried some mushrooms without added heat. I just washed and cut them up, did no blanching, no anti-oxidation treatment. Put them on baking racks in front of a fan we were using anyway. Don't remember how long it took.

I like mushrooms and want to add their cultivation to my library of skills. Right now though I buy them from the grocery store. I must admit I'm bad about not getting them into a plate in time. I store them on a shelf with my other (don't need refrigeration) produce like potatoes and onions and they sometimes dry out. I'd wondered if I couldn't save those dried ones and use them later.
