semi dry shrooms stored in baggie
    #3181599 - 09/26/04 03:07 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

A friend put some almost completely dried shrooms in a plastic baggie with a dessicant packet and kept them in his pocket for 5 to 6 hours. When he pulled them out, they were all completely dark blue and smelled very strongly (not a bad smell, but an overwhelming shroom smell). They also looked a little moist.

He realised his mistake and wrapped the shrooms in a paper towel. A few hours later he started fan drying the shrooms.

Are these babies still ok to consume or is it not worth the risk? As they are all shriveled and dark blue, it's hard to tell if they have rotted too badly.

they're probably ok, but next time only put in a bag when completely dry. better store them in an airtight container with some dessiccant.

Store shrooms in paper bags not plastic.

Thanks guys - lesson learnt: still pliable does not equal 'completely dry'

Why paper and not plastic? Paper bags don't have seals or anything? Please explain.

If they're not quite dry, paper will allow them to 'breathe' and not just turn into disgusting mush.

Dry your shrooms until they are bone dry - ie crunchy, THEN store them in an airtight plastic container. I have tripped on shrooms over 3 years old and still potent.

if you try to bend them and they break in half, you have done a good job drying :smile:
