How long fresh shrooms good for?
    #1263081 - 01/30/03 08:29 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

How long are freshly picked shrooms good for? I don't want to dry them, where should I store them? In the fridge? would they be OK there?

I've seen a mushroom storing bag in supermarkets here in Aus, they claim to keep mushrooms fresh for a long time, atleast longer than any other method (so they claim) I have yet to try them out, but they may be worth a look.

Is this just for fresh shrooms ? I have hearad of people storing dried shrooms in their freezer for a long time, with losing little if any potency.... just wondering.  Oh btw, in anyones experiemce, once dry, where is the best place to keep em? fridge? I may need to store some for up to 3 weeks with losing little potency. Thanks a ton as always ppls :grin:

Yes, freezer is bad only if they are wet. The ice molecules will crystallize and fracture the mushroom's cells which will morph your beautiful crop into a nice pile of frozen black mush.

The best possible way to store them... once completely cracker dry, store in a vacuum sealed bag, with a small bag of dessicant sealed in the bag with them, and pop them in the freezer. They could last for years this way.

If you are going to put them in the freezer..make sure they are cracker dry.

in a rubber maid type tub w/ the lid closed they will get rotten and funky. eat'em fresh or dry them correctly w/ dessicant - check out the faqs, they will have a link.

I have found that if you get some citric acid, and/or some of the "fruit fresh" products that are mostly citric acid (Avoid ones with sugars in them) and make a bucket of water/citric acid solution (I havnt figured out a perfect ratio yet, but say maybe 1/4 cup per gallon?) And soak the shrooms in that for a couple of hours (You want the solution to be cool/cold, I think) and then set them out to drain for a bit, then they will keep for a little while longer. But you do not want to store them in plastic, especially plastic bags...thats a no-no. A paper bag LOOSLY in the fridge (NOT freezer!) is right.
I also use this citric acid solution when I am drying them too...it keeps them from oxidizing and helps keep the sillysiben intact better.

But either way, if you are not going to use the shrooms in under a week, then dry them.
