My friend and I are obsessed with plants and fungi that can be used for mind expanding trips. We've just recently begun diving into the world of Mushroom hunting...

We're renting a field guide tomorrow and heading out first day-long adventure tomorrow in some woods in Middle Tennessee... should be fun. He and I have been doing research for the past week straight! I feel like we have enough Googling and reading up on the subject to go out into the wild and give this a go!

Gotta question, is it okay to store morels/shrooms we collect in small, glass mason jars?

First off if you pick any mushrooms you think are active take pictures and make a thread in the Identification forum just to be sure.

About drying you will want the mushrooms 100% dry before you put them in any sealed container. The easiest way to do this is put them on top of a box fan over night to get them mostly dry and then put them in a chamber with damp rid, I tried a few other chemicals used for drying but I found damp rid works the best.

If theres any moisture in the mushroom when you put them in a sealed container they will start to mold easily.

If you don't find many and you still want to store them for a bit of time, Just fan dry them overnight put them in a paper bag and then put that in the fridge if you can.

Exactly, dried shrooms, but when taking them home from the field you should take care of the air exchange, the traditional basket is the best stuff for shroom collector. And remember to dry them as soon as you get back home (if not planning to consume right away :rolleyes:).

Good luck for your hunting! Remember to think where you would hide if you were a little shroom and you'll find them...:mushroom2::mushroom2:
