Storage of mushrooms in vacuum-sealed bag...
    #1748717 - 07/25/03 05:37 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I was thinking about this the other night..if you grew too many shrooms and went about drying them however you do, could you use one of those vacuum-seal machines to store the dried shrooms for an extend period of time? You know those things that seal meats and other foods for freezing/storage. I used to store the shrooms in a ziplock bag which was then placed in a larger ziplock with some dessicant in the larger one. The shrooms lasted for weeks with little effect on potency. Has anyone tried the sealing machine for long term storage?

yeah Infact that is how most/all people store them for long times(years) inside canning jars with a special fitting for the "FOOD SAVER"

here another option if you want to save some money here's the link

thanks! Yea, the problem the my friend runs into is that he loves growing and experimenting and before he knows it, hew has too many shrooms to share, so he has to store them for river/camping/hiking trips which could be months away.

your welcome.
yeah I always store my shrooms as if they are going to be for long term becasue the air will break them down after awhile so I keep them aways from as much air right from the start.Thats cool that your friend is experimenting with mushrooms and you should post so of his findings some time on here if you already didn't that is.

Seal them and put them in the freezer, they will last for years.

Funny, I was just considering the same thing like 2 days ago. Vaccuum sealers are cheap, so this seems like a great method of storage. I will get one and seal all my shrooms into it and freeze it until needed. Glad to hear that this works.
