Slimy mushrooms
    #8334153 - 04/27/08 03:38 PM (6 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, I went on vacation for a week and just got home today. I looked at my cakes and there are a tom of mushrooms but a few of them seem to have a very little slimy texture on the cap. Are these ok to eat? I am currently drying them.

While I was gone I did shut the heat off so they were growing i about 50 - 60F. I dont know if this helps but I figured I would mention it just in case.

I know the veils werent broken for more than 4 or 5 days. Please let me know if you have an answer.

some caps will have a bit of sticky, or slimy(if theyre wet)consistency to them.

but if you had broken veils for 5 days, thats a little more than a mushrooms lifespan i believe, if im wrong someone please correct me, but maybe the slimyness is due to rotting.

if you could post some pics, that would help.

i think even if they are rotting you can still eat them, but you stand the chance of gettin the pukes, and if you can stomach swallowing snotty mush...more power to ya!
