possible fungus in my mushrooms??
    #2280501 - 01/28/04 01:00 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hi, I just got some mushrooms from the same guy as usual. They are not completely dry, and he gave them to me in a plastic bag (!!). One (or maybe more) of these mushrooms has a thin layer of white and very soft to the touch little hairs in the lower part of the stem . Can I eat them?
thanks in advance,
wingo.

Yes you can, that's most probably dry mycelium attached at the base of the stem. Tell "the same guy" to avoid using plastic bags with fresh mushrooms, they get a mess if handled too much and contaminate very easily that way.

Once again Maia answers my doubts :smile:
I've told him like 10 times, and he knows he shouldn't use plastic. He puts them in those bags when somebody asks for mushrooms and he knows that he's going to sell them, but I think it's not good anyway.
Thank you very much,
wingo

Brown paper bags are the way to go for fresh ones... the paper lets the mushrooms breath. Contams love stagnent air. Mushrooms which are stored in plastic bags begin to rot almost immediately.

How can I tell If some mushrooms went bad, or are starting to get bad? what happens to them?

> what happens to them?

They get slimey, turn black on the insides, and start to stink like the inside of a septic tank.
