Sounds like a very disturbing experience! However, this is off-topic since Amanita musacaria is not considered an edible fungus. I have heard of dried Amanita muscaria being used in small quantities as a flavouring in soups (small quantities i presume to be meaning "just a pinch").

Guess it depends on the individual, the dosage, and the highly variable toxicity of the shrooms from one batch to the next. If I eat just a little they taste delicious, I feel really strong & motivated & go out & work in the yard. If I eat just a little too much they taste delicious, I get clumsy & stupid & fall asleep & have really vivid dreams.
No freakin' way I'd ever attempt a dry ounce--that would be like, what, 2 pounds fresh? Way dangerous--these are a nervous system depressant, and the few overdose deaths they've caused have been from respiratory failure.
My friend has eaten a. muscaria a few times. However, one time he ate 1 medium sized cap of grade A Siberian Agaric, blood red. It smelled of chocolate but tasted horrible. The gills had been almost totally removed before it had been dried. The mushroom was powdered and mixed with honey and eaten on a half empty stomach. Within 1/2 he was feeling lots of nausea. He smoked a bowl but it didn't help. Next thing he knows he's puking his guts out. The taste of the mushrooms brings on another series of violent heaves. He spends about 20 minutes shivering in a cold sweat on the bathroom floor. The bathroom' spinning makes it hard to get up. Finally he gets a glass of water and lays down on the couch. Now the walls are breathing or being blown by a breeze. He said that it was nothing like the smurfs he'd eaten before. He has not given up on the red devils though. He got hold of half a dozen small quater size dried buttons; said to be the most highly prized by the Siberians. But that is another story, not as bad,but very weird.
