Turkey tail has a slew of science-backed benefits, and making a mushroom powder is one of the most versatile ways to enjoy them. The process is somewhat complicated, but it’s definitely worth the effort.
Because it’s such a lengthy process, making turkey tail powder in large batches is more efficient. Once you find a good flush, responsibly harvest as much as possible. You should be able to make enough to last a month or two.
Once you’ve cleaned your tails, cut them into strips or chunks with scissors. Each piece should be about the same size so they’ll dry at a similar pace. The smaller the pieces are, the faster they’ll dry.
