Buying Mushrooms
    #2142225 - 11/28/03 03:10 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hi, i was just wondering if it would be wise to buy from a supplier. I dont have the time/place to grow myself so I was going to see if i could find some from a friend. If I were to buy, what should I look for contamination wise? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just make sure they have an overall good appearance. Completely dry, no mold, etc.

Don't buy blue mushrooms, they have been either been intentionally bruised for the "sales pitch" or the dumbass doesn't know what the fuck he's doing. Also try to look for ones that are whole (cap and stem attatched) there's no reason why you should be given a bag of stems. No mold, off smell, make sure they are completely dry. You may see some bruising (that is normal) but excessive bruising is a ripoff.

The stems are as good as the caps, in fact the stems are heavier than the caps.
About the bluing theory and quality of the mushrooms, that's quite relative although it might indicate a bad drying procedure, it could also be genetics. There are strains which blue more easily than others.
