Odd colouring of some fresh mushrooms I froze
    #1491179 - 04/24/03 11:17 PM (14 years, 4 days ago)

They are kind of greenish looking, but they aren't fuzzy at all. They were bought fresh picked on wednesday night, and were stored in some paper towels and an unsealed baggie until friday afternoon(half)/night(half), where they were put in a freezer. I checked them yesterday (wednesday), and they looked kind of... well green i guess. Any experiences with freezing fresh to preserve them for a week or 2.

Thanks

I would think freezing fresh shrooms a bad idea... wouldn't it cause all the water in it to ice up and take up more space so that all the cell walls rupture and the psilocin exposed to oxygen and subsequently breaking down? The green is all the good stuff getting destroyed. Maybe. I don't know. Get them by a fan right now, and get some dessicant to dry them completely, or just keep em under the fan if you are going to eat em in a bit.

Freezing shrooms is bad.... well slow freezing shrooms is bad. As the water in the shroom turns to ice, it grinds up the cell bodies. When they thaw you are going to have a pile of dark almost black slimey sludge.

In general, if you do freeze them, leave them frozen until you are ready to eat them. Then toss them frozen into a blender with a bit of fruit juice and blend them up and drink.

As for the green, if it is blue-green then probably just bruising. If it is green-green then they probably rotted while in the bag before you froze them.

It is also bad to store fresh shrooms in a plastic baggie. Use a paper bag or a small cardboard box in the fridge. They will last half a week or so that way. If you want them to last longer, spread them out on a plate and aim a fan so that it blows across them. In a day or two they will be almost cracker dry. Once dry you can store them in the freezer with no worries for a very long time.
