I was recently wondering if it might be possible to store fresh mushrooms and keep them that way - by vacuum sealing. I just got a vacuum sealer from my buddy and I plan on keeping the shrooms as fresh as possible (since we all know fresh is better than dry). If I stored them in the fridge in a vacuum sealed package would they stay fresh, or do you think that's risking something (mushrooms going dry, contams, etc)?

I think the main thing about the rotting is that there is already liquid in the mushrooms when they're fresh. If you vacuum seal them, the liquid locks in... and therefore still rotts.
I could be wrong.

the alkaloids dont go anywhere when you dry them. so theres is no diff in that aspect. but whatever floats your boat.
dry em, its better for storage.
Why have I always heard differently, then? I heard some of the alkaloids get destroyed in the drying process.
That's a myth.
I thought the psilocyn in the fresh mushrooms was lost due to oxidation when dried?

what causes them to spoil and rot is bacteria, not just moisture and exposure to air. Thats why drying is the only way to keep them for long periods of time. Without any moisture, moulds and bacteria cant grow.
Ive heard honey can keep them, not sure how long. Personaly i have kept fresh cubes for 5-6 days in the fridge in an open container. They will still dry out a little.
The active chemicals break down in the presence of oxygen. Get them dry quickly and out of the air, then they will keep for a long tie with minimal potency loss. Many people dry there mushrooms at upto 150F in a dehdyrator then will store them in an airtight container.
drying doesnt cause oxidisation, exposure to air does.
