Puffball question

I had an idea, but wanted to ask if anyone else ever tried it before I risk it. When I dehydrate puffballs, I slice them into strips and put them into the dehyrator. When they are done, I vacume pack them and freeze them til I'm ready to use them. I was wondering if anybody ever tried crushing them after they were dry, into sort of a mushroom powder-like consistancy? I know, sounds odd. I like to dredge my deer steaks in seasoned flour before I cook them, and to be able to mix that in with the flour sounds REALLY good to me. Anyone?

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

I have done this with papinkies and sprinkle on fried potatoes with excellent results. Your idea sounds great and I'm going to try it on my next backstraps.

Re: Puffball question

Well, it's done. I had 5 full trays in the dehydrator. Till they dried and I got them crushed, I got about 1/3 of a sandwich bag full. Into the freezer, and now all I need are some deer steaks.

Re: Puffball question

Not to high jack but I have about 15 giant puffballs in my back yard. When I cook them they go soft on me. Is there a way to cook them that makes them good?

Re: Puffball question

Sounds good.. Notice in a few mushroom books I have they tell you to make shroom powder for cooking...Gravies and sauces etc..
