Depends on your stomach.
If you´re sensible, boil them for tea.

If not just munch them away :wink:

I don't think there is a single "best way", but there sure is a few different ways.

Straight up eating them is great and simple, but they can be a little hard on your stomach.

Brewing a mushroom tea is a nice ritual way, and it helps some people with the stomach issues. It also reportedly shortens the come-up time, and also the come down; it makes the trip a little shorter but more intense.

Here's how I do the tea:
- Prepare a pot with cca 100ml cold/lukewarm water per gram of mushrooms
- chop/crush the mushrooms and add them to the broth
- bring the broth to a light boil / simmer
- keep simmering for 10minutes
- take off the heat and add some cold water to bring down the temperature
- optionally strain the mushroom pulp and consume


Lemon Tek is also a pretty sure way that also produces a similar effect as tea.
- Squeeze fresh lemon juice, cca half a big lemon per gram is needed, but more is also good.
- chop/crush the mushrooms and add them to the broth
- mix well for 2 minutes let soak for 15 minutes and mix occasionally (thx Goatrider)
- optionally strain the mushroom pulp and consume

Full conversion into psilocin isn´t done in 2 minutes.
Better 15 minutes in total and stir up every 2 minutes.

I like to grind them up and put them in capsules, no taste and easy to transport.

Yep... plus if you put a large amount in capsules at the same time the potency stays uniform so you can tell right away how strong the batch is going to be and be able to dose accordingly for future trips.

I can't physically eat mushrooms - I gag, choke, dry heave and everyone laughs at me lol. So, I turn the large majority of my fruits into chocolates anywhere from 1-2g per square.

Lately I've been experimenting with brewing a super concentrated tea (like cooking 56g into 6 liquid ounces) and making gummy bears. I haven't dialed this process in yet so there's a lot of waste but they're a crowd pleaser so far.

My next experiment will be to make dehydrated fruit leather. There's no right or wrong way so get creative!

Lat time I did em, ground to dust in food processor, put the dust in a coffee mug, added just enough water to form thick paste, spooned swallowable lumps into mouth, washed down with beer.

Plugged my nose, didnt gag. Sort of a hassle but none got stuck in my teeth, and it was about 25% as gross as just chewchew chewing.

What advice would you give for those of us who have wretched their guts into that porcelain bowl from drinking too much alcohol too fast, for those of us who have wretched by mistakenly thinking that a platter of Kung Fu chicken kept in the refrigerator for five consecutive days during the winter would still be palatable on the fifth day?

Tea is the easiest on your stomach and you can flavor it pretty much however you want. Brew tea, discard tea bag, boil shrooms in tea for 20 minutes, strain, stir in honey/citrus/ginger/herbs and go. I've got a freezer full of chocolates but if you're sensitive to mushrooms they can upset your stomach and make people nauseous from time to time.

Well I was just stirring the dust into a full glass of water, but the bigger chunks were making me gag. Maybe I should just roll up my sleeves and chocolatize the rest of what I got ..

if they are cracker dry, I actually find them somewhat tasty. easy to down by themselves for me, but even easier just to eat them with chocolate.

I'll usually make tea/coffee. Made a 7.5g GT cap into some coffee this morning. It's just easier on my super sensitive stomach.

I have found that shrooms I've dried (and know to be as cracker dry as they're going to get) really aren't that bad. I think for most of my life I was given sub-par shrooms that were not properly dried or had rehydrated on their way to me. When they're really, really, dry, they don't taste like much of anything.

edit: A *fresh* 7.5 GT cap (not dried -- fuck).

Agreed. I live in PNW where it’s humid, so The stuff I got from other people before got rehydrated somewhat before I consumed them, and they always got that chewy texture and somewhat disgusting taste. Non of that is there when it’s dry to the bone.

IDK maybe I'm just a pussy or it's a legitimate biological response but I can not chew them up without gagging and dry heaving. I give my neighbor a fat back a couple times a year and he just pops that shit in his mouth and chews it like popcorn around a campfire and even watching that gets my stomach churning

My favorite is to make hot cocoa.  Hides the shroom gag taste in a way that tea doesn't, and it's just as easy to make as tea.

Simmer crushed up or powdered mushrooms in 8oz of water for 10 minutes, until the water boils down to about 4oz.  Strain and discard the solids.  Stir in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons of sugar.  Top off with milk, microwave about 20-30 seconds to warm up again.  Add marshmallows if you feel like them.

Nice - I'll be giving that a try pretty soon. The snow is about to fly here and my wife and I always try to go camping the night of the first snow. This sounds like the perfect thing to sip on around the fire
