Perlite sticking to fruits. will it be safe after drying?
    #2079564 - 11/07/03 03:58 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

So for whatever reason, my shrooms decided they were going to be snakes, and they grew from the bottom of my cakes, and slithered across the perlite. When I harvested the 3 biggest mushrooms (the snakes) there was perlite stuck to the the shroom where it was touching the ground. I brushed most of it off, but i imagine there is still perlite particles on them or something. I was just wondering if the rest of it will easily come off after they are dried, or if I need to wash them off, or if theres really not much harm as long as I brushed most of it off.

also, how can you tell if an abort is rotted, or was beginning to rot? how sick can you get from eating a slightly rotted abort? I didn't think a certain mushroom was an abort, so I left it on, to see what happened, but after a few days it turned out to still be an abort. I just want to make sure it didn't rot and become bad for eating. thanks everyone.

We're all children here, so could we please start acting like it?

the rest of the perlite will brush off much easier when there dry,eating a little bit wont hurt anyway.
i end up eating a little vermiculite every time i eat shrooms.

regarding aborts..best to pick them just when they start to turn dark.
if it's slimey then trash it,if it's still rubbery like a fresh shroom then eat it.

usually there too tiny to worry much about.
