Washing off the dirt?
    #2026797 - 10/20/03 10:15 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I was over at someones house and looked at the pile of dry shrooms they collected so far this fall and noticed dirt, grass, and woodchips in their bag. I have always reccommended washing off the dirt before running them through the drying process. This guy says that he read somewhere that the psy.'s in the shrooms are soluable in water and it gets lost therefore he refuses to wash them. I on the other hnd would rather wash them than take a chance on eating a clump of dirt or bite down on a rock. By pouring them in a pot and just swishing them around in water gets alot of unwanted material off. If the psy's are soluable in water then when it rains on the shrooms the psycilibins gets washed off to . I do notice that when I pick and not eat I still get a buzz which must be a contact high. So there is some stuff coming out of them when picking. Any reccommendations on cleaning them up?

Uh... FFS, do a search. There was a thread on the exact same thing less than 3 days ago. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

Do not wash off the dirt, 99% can be cleaned while picking. Also let the shrooms dry separately on paper and then when dry the powdetred dirt remaining can be rubbed off and then put into a bag for storage, Thats how i clean fresh edible shrooms.

Psilocine is water soluable and wahing them after picking them can cause a small loss of some potency.

They should npot be dried without being cleaned. Look at some of the dried shrooms or those drying at my shroom site to see what it is I am talking about. They are inthe http://www.mushroomjohn.com/species.htm section of my site int he species you are referring to.
