can you freeze fresh mushrooms?
    #3573560 - 01/03/05 01:02 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i know this is starting to border on harrassment, but i was wondering if anyone had a yay or nay answer. basically...will it degrade the potency to take your freshly picked mushrooms, bag them tightly and save them for a month in the freezer, undried? i'm begginning to cry here. lol

why don't you want to dry them? it only takes a day and they will store for a really long time like this.

if you choose to freeze them, you should use some butcher paper to wrap them in.

If you freeze fresh mushrooms, you will end up with a deep blue substance after they have thawed, a clear indication for the loss of the potency due to disintegration of psilocybin and psilocin. So don't freeze fresh shrooms!
On the other hand, freezing cracker dry shrooms in an air- and watertight container has been reported to help preserve their potency for years.

because i dont have the propper equipment. i have a huge fan that even on its lowest setting , blows likea hurricane. i have a room mate that doesnt ahve much tollerance for my little hobby...i cant afford to go and buy dessicants, ....right now i cant afford butcher paper. and i live in such a small town , i doubt its available at any store we have. lol. i'm going to go to bed soon ad see if they've dried. then i'm going to stick them in honey and pray no water rises to the top. sigh...would you reccomend freezing the honey? i wnat these to keep for a month at least and theres not a dry spot int eh house. its always humid here. honey seems to really degrade the potency . maybe because of the water build up. if i dried them first, i could get more in...and maybe that would counter that problem . i just dont know. the house will always be humid. ...lol...i'll just keep on asking questions.

freezing fresh shrooms messes them up. I've done it. It makes them into yuck and kills the magic.

I have heard from reliable people that freezing shrooms is fine so long as you eat them/make tea straight from the freezer.

Can anyone confirm this? Drying is inconvenient for me also...

All I can tell you is my experience. I froze a bunch and they did just like they do when they get frozen in nature- turned a black/purplish and gross. I tried to brew them because there was no way I could eat them and the tea was as thick as syrup. I drank a bunch of it and had little if any effect.

i decided i'm going to have to use the black t-shirt with a lamp method for drying. however...right now i have too many to dry at the same time. the rest are separated here in the house and on some paper towels. i'd mush rather blow dry them , but my fan is all crazy. i dont want flying mushrooms.
using the back t-shirt method, will alot of the magic be heated away?

Can you rig a rack that will hold the shrooms and keep them from blowing away in front of the fan? That would be the best idea.

yeah I would try and improvise, make do with what you've got. You must be able to make something that will allow you to use the fan without the mushrooms blowing away. You could also try making a tea with fresh mushrooms, that should preserve potency for a few months.

I've never frozen tea, but that may work. Keeping it in the fridge that long will cause it to get moldy.

Okay so today I picked about 9 caps or so and I froze them without drying them around 1 oclock today, because I planned to eat them tomorrow. I know it is ideal to dry them before freezing them. But will i still trip if I eat these tomorrow night? I would have dried them but I had a super jammed packed day and honestly had no time, and I wasn't aware that it was a bad thing to do...

YOu could have put them in the fridge though....

You will trip, but good luck getting the black mushroom sludge down...

You'll most likely still trip. 
However the freezing will have burst the fungal cells so if you let it thaw it will end up with wet moosh.  Which is why drying first is optimal.
