Not a good idea at all but i think that's ok if you dry them fast. Try to identify the black abort if you can and toss it.

Wait a minute. I think I miss something about abhorts.

I grew something like 5-6 PF cakes so far and when I get abhorts, I always wait for the cap to turn black before picking it (I thought this way was the only one to be 100% sure it's an abhort)..

You guys are saying that when the caps turns black, it's too late and can be harmful to consume?

I think I'll try to find them back in my ziplocs and put em appart...

You can usually identify aborts before the cap turns black. Simply look for the ones that quit growing and that have caps which start to darken.

I cannot speak for aborts, but when drying the fruit, if you dry them slow, they turn black as they rot. The smell is horrid, very similiar to a septic tank.

Black capped aborts arent a problem. You can spot em earlier. I dont believe black cap = rot while on the cake.

I used to pick all the shrooms off at one time aborts and matures. By the time most are mature, the aborts caps have started to turn black/darker. The caps also get a harder texture to em once they get aborted.
