Mushroom cleaning solutions
    #3509505 - 12/16/04 05:55 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

i'm calling all minds together to co-conspire a way to clean all that nasty verm off of your mushrooms. as many of us know, its a pain in the ass to pick off every piece of verm by hand. i guess we could just chop of the lower parts of the shroom w/ verm on them but i'm not keen on wasting any magic. so, lets put our heads together and think of a way to clean our fungus!! if people can figure out how split atoms, i think we can figure out a better way to clean mushrooms.

i've tried that, some comes off but alot gets dried up and 'swallowed' by the drying shroom flesh making it impossible to get it out.

Use a toothbrush before and after they are dry. Very simple. A well colonized casing will leave less material on your shroom as well.

grains help, so does regular verm (not fine verm). i'll try the toothbrush idea, that sounds good. maybe there could bel like a drying tumbler that would shake off and discard small bits of verm during the drying process. like a combination of dehydrator/tumbler.

You dont need EVERY peice of verm off..its not toxic or anything...

If they are cracker dry you just rub a little hard with your fingers and roll the base in your fingers and it will pretty much all flake off. Be firm but not firm enough to snap it. You can leave the 5 or so flakes imbedded..

A very sharp parring knife works well for me . Just carefully scrape off the outer layer of skin on the stem and clean she shall be , for real tough messy ones , just cut the ass off the shroom . Sometimes there is no choice but to tediously pick off the sub\verm chunks , but in most cases scraping with knife does the trick .
