Long Term Preservation?
    #3018075 - 08/18/04 01:51 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

What's the best way to preserve shroooms for around 6 months? I'd like to grow a couple z's and keep them in storage for the winter so I don't have to have a continual illegal grow operation at my spot.
I was thinking of drying them by the fan/damprid method and vacuum sealing them?????

Thanks for any input!!

Sounds good. Im sure the fan/damprid would be enough.

Blue honey is also a very good option and can give you a much longer shelf life. I agree sounds good.

From another board:

It said put fresh shrooms in the honey and the moisture from the shrooms will seperate out...I gather you need to pour it off. Then you just wait, and eventually the honey will absorb the psilocybin, and you will wind up with blue colored honey that you can put in tea or eat with a spoon. The info said that the shrooms can be extracted after the honey turns blue; they're still good, but much of the psilocybin has leached into the honey

if they are 100% dry they will stay good for at least four years, probably a lot more. A few times I have done shrooms that were years old and always been very happy with them. I have never heard of shrooms losing anything if they had been properly dried. These shrooms were stored for years in regular baggies in; a safe, a drawer and, a box in a basement. Never any meticulous storage.

Hmm. I was thinking of putting dry fruits in a quart mason jar with a small amount of dessicant in the bottom and a bit of screen to separate the dessicant from the fruits. If you sealed the jar well, I would think this would provide a very dry, closed environment for storage.
Can anyone speak to this?

I have fan dried for 2-3 days, placed in a sealed container with ablut 1-2in desicant for about 1-2 days. Then place in a sealed container with desicants inside of a coffee filter stapled together. You can also use a teabag in place of teh coffee filter.

Niteowl--Is there any problem leaving fruits with a dessicant in a closed container for extended periods?

BTW Blue honey requires in initial fan drying because ya don't want to introduce any excessive water, also the left over shrooms are all but void of magic as the honey takes on almost all!!! :laugh:

If you Grind them up, about what dosage is = to 1 Gelcap? I recently got a shroom-chocolate. It was a little star-shape thing that the kid told me "contained an 1/8" i was skeptical so he gave me a free one to try. i ate half and it felt like i ate half an 1/8 of regular shrooms. Did he / someone eles just grind up shrooms and mix it with melted chocolate?

They were delicious by the way.

is there anyway to preserve mushrooms for a real long time thats NOT in the freezer?.. is it true that you can just preserve them in an air tight container for 3 years?

Someone already gave a close answer

I believe Honey Perservation can make Pislocybin last for years and years.

I have read this many many many times thru the years.

Shrooms straight into honey
Leave e'm
