Cleaning Outdoor Shrooms
    #2862346 - 07/06/04 08:06 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

What is the proper procedure for cleaning shrooms that have grown outside? Would one rince the whole shroom or just the base when it mixes with the cow poop? Does rinsing with water lessen the potency? Do harmful bacteria live on shrooms grown outdoors?

do not rinse with water
let them dry a little
then brush whatever dirt, poop etc that you didn't get off initially
off of the shroom
be sure to check for bugs, etc

actives are water soluble
prob wouldn't deteriorate potency a whole ton
but it would seem wise to avoid IMO

It's common practice when harvesting ANY type of fresh mushroom to not clean them until it is time for preparation and consumption. Many pickers like to store their mushrooms fresh for best flavor and eat them before they HAVE to be dried for long term storage. For this reason you don't want to wash fruits, then place them in the fridge because the wet mushrooms with rot a lot faster then semi-dry or freshly picked samples from the wilds.

If you are drying the harvest without concern for storing fresh then I'm sure it would be OK to wash them breifly or pick off areas of dirt and debris as long as they are quickly dried afterward (using a fan or food dehydrator on a low or no heat setting). Sometimes it is easier to remove dirt and debris after the mushrooms are dry, it just depends on the condition in which you find them and whether or not you are concerned with getting a little grit in your teach come munching time :wink:.

personally, I like to clean mine BEFORE they're dry. Just rub off any dirt/shit with your fingers. If you wait for them to dry, you might end up with shit stuck inside the wrinkles of the shroom.
