Amanita muscaria better fresh?
    #1355431 - 03/06/03 06:32 PM (18 years, 8 months ago)

I would like to try amanita muscaria, but dried they look absolutely disgusting, I would imagine they taste horrible. Could they be eaten fresh?

There is very little magic in them until they are dried under heat. The heating activates the magic. Do a little research to find out how long and how hot.

well....
drying (or heating) decarboxylates the ibotenic acid to muscimol, and muscimol is "less noxious" than ibotenic acid (which can cause twitching & muscle spasms...
as to taste, well, some of the chems found in these shrooms (& related chems found in other shrooms) have been characterized as "the fifth taste" and are highly prized as flavor enhancers in some dishes (see the chapter on amrita in jonathon ott's heavy-duty book _pharmacotheon_)...
shucks, there used to be a section accessible from the front page here just on amanitas...
and of course there's many other sites with info on these fungi as well...
yaddayadda...

HI ANno, I jsutr visited that page on aAmanita muscaria.

I would like to bring up one ointeresting observation reagreding the alleged use of this mushroom buy the Vikings.

I have, in my files, a letter from the Lat Harvard ethnobotanist, Ricjard Evans Schultes, co-author with Dr., Albert Hofmann of the book, Plants of the Gods, who wrote me that the Viking myth of beserlkers who allegeddly used Amanita mushrooms has since been disproven.

The letter in my file is proof enough for me.

and the Shamans in both Siberia and North America who use the Amanita always eat them dried.
