drying and freeze preservation
    #1369764 - 03/12/03 04:30 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Good day to you all,

I am just inquiring about what the limit is to the temperature one should use in drying mushrooms so as not to destroy the chemicals which cause tripping.

After these are dried is putting them in a household freezer a good idea and if so how cold can I store them and is there a limit to this sub freezing temperature.

I greatly appreciate your help.

well if u put in a freezer water molecules will expand and thrash the mush if any are left in the fungi itself if not i think it'd be ok but it'd be hard to get em that dry. just store em in a glass jar with some silicia gel/calcium chloride in bottom and make sure they don't have contact (wire mesh or something of sorts)

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.
