Reply To: Mushroom Oils & Truffle Oils

Thanks. I’ll keep researching and check with a few people if they have a distiller. My problem right now is almost all of my frozen mushrooms were cooked as many do not freeze well. I do have a few fresh frozen morels. Thankfully, now, I didn’t have time to cook them last April before we left on a trip and I just threw them in the freezer! :-))

From what I have read, oils made with dried mushrooms should be safe. So I can always try a sample batch and see how that works. I have also read that canola oil is fairly low on VOC’s, is that correct?

I can imagine it takes a lot to make oils. It’s like dyeing with mushrooms. Usually it’s an ounce of dried mushroom to and ounce of wool.
