I have some old jars that i had forgoten about and they grew some mushrooms on them. I want to know if they would still be good to eat. One of the jars looks like it may have a small amount of contam on it.
If from the outside it looks like 'a little bit' of a contam, odds are it is more extensive. It's a really subjective thing, however, I would advise against consuming 'invitro' contaminated fruits. If there is a little bit of cobweb/trich on a casing layer that is fruiting fine, I have no problem saying the fruits are likely safe to harvest and consume. Invitro, however, could be hiding the extent of contamination to a significant degree; in addition, the fruits themselves are contained in the environment where the contaminant is growing [inside the jar]. Invitro fruits that are clean, however, are just fine; many a tek is based on this premise.
