Place Mushrooms in Sunlight to Get More Vitamin D!

By placing any type of mushrooms in the sunlight for any amount of time you can increase the levels of vitamin d in the mushrooms.  Humans are able to absorb the vitamin d absorbed by the mushrooms.  Here’s how to do it:

  1. Obtain fresh Organic shiitake, maitake, button, oyster, shimeji or other mushrooms.
  2. On a sunny day in June, July or August, slice the fresh mushrooms. Place them evenly on a tray exposed directly to the sun from 10 am to 4 pm.
  3. Before nightfall, cover the mushrooms with a layer of cardboard to block moisture from dewfall.
  4. The next clear day repeat exposure to the sun from 10 am to 4 pm.
  5. Remove the mushrooms and finish drying (if necessary in a food dehydrator until they are crispy).
  6. When thoroughly dry, store in a glass jar or sealed container. Adding a tablespoon of uncooked rice as a moisture absorber will help keep the mushrooms dry. The mushrooms should be good for a year or more, depending upon conditions.
  7. Take 10 grams daily per person, about a small handful. Rehydrate in water for one hour. The mushrooms will swell. Then cook as desired.
