are mushrooms bad after they spore?
    #3091597 - 09/04/04 04:11 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

The one and only night I forgot to check on my mushrooms the whole flush decided to spore. I know that ideally you should pick them right after the gills have serepated from that little filmy thing on the stem, but now that they've all spored and the caps are mostly black, are they totally inedible? will they make anyone sick? i tried to find information on this and i couldn't find anything. should i just throw them away or maybe try scraping the black soot off the tops? i don't want to scrape off any of the important stuff.... help!

...still hopeful...

You should try to pick them befoer they turn black. If they're just black because of spores on them then they're fine. If they're black because of rot, don't eat them.

Eat more string cheese. It's good for you.

And about scraping the "important stuff" off... you can blend and crush shrooms into a powder... so I highly doubt you could just scrap off the "important stuff," heh. Heat, water, and air are what you don't want to mess with.

After the veils are torn, the mushrooms shift from psilocybin production to spore production (Or so i've read).

You should be fine if you just pick them after the veil breaks. And if you are late a little but I don't think there would be much of a difference.
