blue/green aborts and... chocolate
    #3431672 - 12/01/04 08:24 AM (12 years, 6 days ago)


Hi to all and thanks for your help (the results of which you can see at the pic :grin: ).
1. i'showing at the pic some blue/green mushrooms. i have lots of these on 3 equadorian cakes. they are green/blue from when they appear as pins and they turn to be aborts. i want to ask if it is usual for an abort to have this colour on its stem except from the black cap. it is safe to eat, isn't it? could they be contaminated or something?
2. i've started to dry and i want somebody to confirm , comment this... if i
-fan dry the mushrooms,
-put in a desiccant chamber for 2-3 days,
-make them fine powder,
-put them in chocolate (the one without sugar and milk),
-preserve the chocolate in tin foil and in an air tight container in the freezer
will the chocolate last for 3-4 months? i 've read that preserving in chocolate is a good method of long term preservation but nowhere i could find how long in months.
thank you in advance. i've reached so far thanks to your replies to my noobie questions. keep on :wink:

the blue/green is probably the psilocin/psilocybin oxidizing, normal occurance. if they don't seem moldy, eat and enjoy.

my long term storage is using a food dehydrator to dry them out (no heating element) then putting them in the coffee grinder and putting them in spare jars. a little silica gel pack from a shoebox keeps the moisture out. :smile:

i don't know about chocolate, i don't really like to put mine in chocolate. they are wonderful sprinkled on top of spaghetti, though.

Is grinding the shrooms really best for long term preservation? The psychoactives don't experience any damage from this?

grinding would be a physical change, not chemical.

no one have an opinion about the long term preservation of mushroom dried powder in chocolate (and in freezer)? i've read many prefer their mushrooms this way..

sorry for insisting on the preservation of chocolates, i understand that maybe no one would prefer this method for long term preservation. but if i hear some pisitive opinions i 'd like to do this job tomorrow so really i want very much to clear this...
