Are these shrooms still OK? Plz help!
    #1632886 - 06/14/03 11:42 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I had some fresh shrooms and left them for 2 days in the refrigerator in a sealed plastic container... they have reaaaally blued all over, they aren't molded but they are VERY VERY blue.  Are they still OK for consumption?  Will they be much less potent?  I usually dry my shrooms immediately but read that fresh shrooms are better to take if possible since they have some degree higher of psilocybin... should I make tea or what?  Or will that destroy the psilocin (or whatever the other, less stable, form of psilocybin is called)?  Cuz I think I'd be minged out eating these mushy blue things straight lol....

thanks for any help! :smile:

they are ok to eat, but are probably a lot less active. Freezing fresh shrooms is not advised as the water content will not only break the cell walls and turn the shrooms to mush but will also cause the alkaloids to oxidize even faster then if they were at room tempurature drying out. Mushrooms must be dried asap. this is why I prefer smaller mushrooms, they dry faster.

next time put them in a paper bag in the fridge, should last at least three days without any degradation of alkaloids.

Yes it is very bad to put fresh shrooms in an air tight environment such as a plastic bag. There is no air flow and any goodies inside will get contammed.

Ah well, no worries - I ended up making tea, and throwing in an extra 2g's of dried shrooms... between me and the gal I trip with, it did okay :smile:

Definitely was a silly mistake putting it in a sealed plastic container though... when I've kept shrooms in the refrigerator for a couple days before, I put them in a thick brown paper envelope which seemed to keep them quite happy for at least a few days.  Thanks for all of your kind help :smile:

Bluing inside the stems, is it really bad? Sometimes, I split the stems after they have been in the dehydrater for a day and sometimes they are blue inside. What does this mean? What can I do to fix the problem?

Are you sure you want to eat those?:mushroom2:

Blueing is a reaction that takes place when the active alkalo?ds in the shroom come into contact with air. It is perfectly normal, and there's little you can do about it, except from handling your shrooms carefully. If your shrooms show heavy signs of blueing, this might indicate that the potency of your shroom has deminished somewhat. This is the main reason for not grinding or handling fresh shrooms too much.
