Storing fresh...
    #2585996 - 04/21/04 06:25 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)


I have fresh shrooms between two sheets of kitchen towel/paper in the fridge, do you think they'll keep for 3 days without any (or at least very little) loss of potency?? Or should I just go ahead and dry them out? I know the FAQ says they'll keep for a week so I guess it'll be ok... What do you reckon?

dont; worry, you can easily keep them in the fridge for a few days, even a week. the only thing you can't do with fresh shroomies is freeze them.

You can store fresh mushrooms in an enclosed paper bag int he door side of your refrigerator for up to 5-7 days and they r will retain their potency.

Do not freeze

What happens if you freeze them?

I guess you must lose the active ingredients... I think maybe they just turn to mush when you bring them back up to room temp??

because if you freeze them you'll turn them into mush (when you unfreeze them)

I dont understand why freezing them would make any diff in the potency.

Sure they make it into mush but wouldnt freezing help store them?

If your goona make tea or eat them on toast and peanut butter than might as well.
