liberty cap storage
    #1805212 - 08/12/03 12:49 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

i live in ireland and was wondering about something ive been told

i was told i could just keep irish mushies in a jar of honey where
they will keep fresh as long as i want

has anyone else heard of this or done this?
what happened

3 more weeks to go before thousands of my funghi friends grow from
irelands green grass

questions for any experts out there    are there others ways of preservation other than drying  ie keeping them in alcohol (bottle of whiskey for instance)     :stoned:

if there are other irish readers there especially from dublin or wicklow post here on this thread and have a natter about wheres and whens of mushie hunting season

Ahhh, good to see another liberty cap lover. Greetings friend.

Yes, you can store your shrooms nicely in honey and they will not lose potency.

The only other way I know is to make them cracker dry and put them in a 100% air tight vessel. Then store in cool, dry place!

You will want to air-dry the shroomies, I think, before you add them to the honey.

You don't want to store fresh mushrooms in honey. Just dry the mushrooms and place them in a bag.

im particularly looking for an answer from brits or irish
(nothing against you crazy americans simply because the shrooms i
do will be very similar to theirs,give me your opinion all the same
perhaps some of you have tried placing cubensis or whatever freshly into honey p.s. crazy is not a derogatory term ,funny)

One collection of liberty caps from 1851 were analysed i the late 1970s at Evergreen College in Olympia and found to be as potent as a collection from the late 1970s collected in Oregon.

Keep them dried and away form heat, light and refrigerator freezers.

Preferably in jars wioth rubber stoppers. The herbarioum they were taken form in London did not use dessicant or other such agents.
