freezing question
    #1890976 - 09/07/03 02:47 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)


i could not manage to dry my shrooms "cracker dry", however, although they can still be bended, they are relatively dry and have lost most of their volume;

i decided to freeze them in this state (in a little plastic bag); now, i just read in the shroomery faq that you should not freeze fresh shrooms because it will cause potency loss; do you think freezing relatively (but not completely) dry shrooms is a problem? any experiences? do you think adding honey to isolate them from air would be a good thing? as i have already frozen them, what would you advise me to do?

i would say that they could turn to soup as soon as you thatw them because freezing while they still hasve moisture in them could cause some serious tissue damage...why are you freezing them? just put them in mason jars with dessicant packages...they will last for....i have been told, like years.
