can you freeze harvested shrooms to preserve?

Would there be any problems with freezing harvested shrooms?

Not fresh ones! Dried mushrooms are fine to freeze (since there is no water), but fresh will turn to mush after you thaw them. Do not freeze fresh mushrooms.

they were most likely damaged a little. Just be sure to dry them completely, then place in zip baggie, squeeze out all the air before sealing, and freeze. Be sure they're crisp dry first. Though you may have caused a little damage, they should be salvagable... 4 hrs isn't too bad.

Put them in a bag on ice or in the fridge if your going to eat within the next 3 days.

Is it really a problem if they turn to mush though? Maybe they're harder to eat but is potency affected in anyway?
