Best way to preserve mushrooms for 2-4 months?
    #2198197 - 12/23/03 06:21 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

What’s the best method of preserving mushrooms for a few months? (Mason jars, zip-lock plastic bags?) I want to save about a 1/2 oz. of dried mushrooms for anywhere from 2-4 months. Right now, they are stored in zip-lock bags in an airtight fire-safe in my closet. They are kept in perfect darkness and the temp. in the closet is cool.

Thanks,

drloomis

Maybe some dessicant packets but it sounds good already provided they were cracker dry.

Dry them out good, put them in a bag and take out the air and stick them in your freezer :smile:

Try your best to keep them away from oxygen, heat and light. Put dry ice in a Mason Jar (you can buy it from the freezer guys at most large grocery stores for like a dollar) the gas that is emitted from the dry ice is carbon dioxide the dry ice evaporates in the jar and releases CO2 gas it will push out thwe oxygen. Let the ice dissolve completly first since the evaporating ice will exert too much pressure inside the jar and crack it. Drop in you shroomes and seal it up put it in the freezer. It will last a long time. A sealed bag is sufficient for a couple months in the freezer as long as you dont open the bag up alot taking thenm in and out of the freezer. Leave them alone in thare.

Never store your shrooms in a freezer. That is bad for the psilocine.\

Only w/o dessicant, otherwise low temps always slow down degradation of tryptamines.Murple has shown the oxidative degradation of 4-HO tryptamines and it always was slowed by cold temps and lack of O2.I have frozen GT's which are over a yr old w/o any loss of potency.And have a jar of semi-honey which is 6-7yrs old that I dare anyone to eat a whole table spoon :wink: all I keep frozen with desicant.

Back in the late 1970s I had four dried pounds of liberty caps in my freezer in Cottage Cheeese Containers. My wife and i went away for a weekend and came ohome to fined that the buildings electric ity had been off for three days. The shrooms were rotting and stunk like dead bodies.

And again I say there are multiplke reasons for not freezing shrooms.

If you plan to et them with in ten days then a paper bag of fresh shrooms can be kept in the door side of the icebox.

If long teerm then no light or heat works fine.

A chemical analuysis of liberty caps from England from 1861 were analysed and found to be as postent as fresh picked liberty caps from ORegon and Washington. The English collection was stored on plain paper in a sheet in a herbarium in London form 1861.

MJ...there is no doubt that freezing fresh or undried shrooms is bad for the psilocin and not recomended overall because of the water expanding and destroying the psilosin and overall shroom. But cracker Dried shrooms with desciant in airtght mason jars will not destroy the psilocin if placed in the freezer...right? I like to put my dry shrooms in the freezer mainly because one time after a month of my shrooms being dried in a mason jar in my closet, there were some bugs that evidentally survived the drying which were probably eggs that hatched. There were just a few months and wanst gross but I still dont want bugs on my shrooms. Freezing them will surely kill any bugs that might me hangin around and guarantee no critters from gettin in.

I say fresh shrooms in honey in a mason jar. That should keep them pristine and tasy for a while.
