cyans?! id request and newbies first post
    #3236674 - 10/09/04 04:46 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

hey there everyone, it's my first post!
i'm extremely new to this but i've been studying hard and walking the streets.
i believe i have my first real find! i'm quite excited. please let me know what you guys think.

tops:


bottoms:


Description:
Habitat: Seattle (Capitol Hill) woodchips
Gills: brown, attached.
Cap: 2-4 cm caramel to tan with bluing. convex to wavy.
Stem: 2-3 cm white, bluing.
Spore print: purple-gray
Cap, stem and gills all bruising blue.
Scent: mMushroomy. sSlightly varinaceous (melony?)

also, i am curious how soon i should try to dry them. do i need to do it today? or will they last a couple of days?
i've heard that cyans are somewhat more potent fresh.
and if i eat them fresh, how would you recommend i prepare them? saute with butter? just raw?
any ideas would be very appreciated.

thanks!

Looks like them. The blueing should be a bit more intense.

You can dry them out and they should last a while.

Don't cook them; heat destroys the goodies.

I went to st thomas and camped out ontop of the island... Despite my entire family being poor all my life, the land is priceless.
I was chased by haitians in the main city charlotte amalie when my girlfriend and I got some cocaine for free in a bar and mixed it with alcohol, to form a stronger drug. With such confidence at 2am, we walked the 4-5 or so miles down to the beach where the african slaves lie like lions waiting on tourist prey.


The war isen't on drugs... the war is on the causes that influence people to abuse drugs. drug-abuse is a by-product of the system and much like radioactive waste occurs from utilizing nuclear power, drug addicts with drug-problems will need to be properly disposed of, like the decaying radioactive waste produced from nuclear energy. -i2ancid

wow, that is a really good feeling. nothing like poking around in wet woodchips for hours and hours and then actually finding what you're looking for!! and they were just sitting there like any other little mushroom, like, "really? you think i'm pretty?"
thank you DH. like i said, i've been studying so i was pretty sure. but the confirmation just feels good.
i ate a small bit of one today (i'm very cautious) and i've been feeling pleasantly buzzed for a few hours now.
I2ancid, um, last i heard weilii's don't grow in seattle...
so, i am still curious if any of you have a sense of how long you can keep these fresh before putting a little work into drying them. 2 days? a week? has anyone had a bad experience by not drying them?
thanks all and especially the moderators and the people that keep this thing running. what a great site!

Nice find :thumbup:. I went on my first hunt in Seattle yesterday also and turned up a pretty decent patch. Check my pictures in the Fall 04 Cyan thread. Living in Seattle kicks ass doesn't it? haha!

Maggots will often eat them up in no time if you dont take steps to drying them within the first day or 2. It's really easy to dry them though. You can either dry them by putting them on a grille of a fan or putting some cloth overtop of them then propping a light to shine down on that (no closer than a foot away). Either method takes quite a few hours. Good luck!
