    #1792406 - 08/08/03 04:17 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

at which temperature are amatoxins and the chemical of bolete's non active?
i am wondering if maikng mushroom tea could potentially destroy these toxins.



"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

no that is not possible.

I don't know if this made it into the mushroom hunting myths part of the FAQ and i've heard it said before but it had no bassis in reality.


Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I'm just chiming in to say "he's right!" Amatoxins are not destroyed by heat - most of the people poisoned by them cooked them first. Neither are the toxins in the poisonous boletes destroyed by heat.

There are mushroom toxins which are destroyed by heat. That's why all edible mushrooms should not be eaten raw. In particular, morels are well known for making people sick when not adequately cooked.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
