Drying/storage questions
    #1328629 - 02/23/03 10:31 AM (21 years, 3 months ago)

At present I have a few drying concerns. My setup is very simple and thrown together - a tupperware container partially filled with DampRid, on top of which is a piece of ordinary typing paper, on top of which are the mushrooms.

With this setup, mushrooms typically become cracker-dry in about five days. Now, aside from the fact that I can't do very many mushrooms at once, does anyone see a problem with this setup?

Secondly, some of the mushrooms in my current batch have blue bruising on the stems (from some inept handling) and most of the mushrooms' caps are darkening, which I haven't seen before. So: is this darkening of the caps anything to be concerned about, and do mushrooms lose much potency when they're bruised?

you can use the top of a fresh egg container with several holes punched in it.
As for the bruising, yeah it can be bad depending who you ask. I some morons who purposely bruise the fruits to make them look more "potent".

So, by fresh egg container you mean those syrofoam cartons? I think I don't understand the concept, can you explain more fully?

Instead of using typing paper, try using material that allows for more air flow (wire mesh, tin-foil with a lot of holes in it).
