Preserving amanitas
    #3981259 - 03/28/05 08:05 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

So in a few days I'm going to hunt for amanitas. There are plenty in the woods nearby my hometown.
What I'm curious about is: How should I preserve them (after drying). Is fridge a good idea?

a plastic bag would create unneeded moisture eventually causing mold.. i have followed the steps of heating them in an oven for an hour or 2 and after that i put them in a paper bag in a dark place.. i do not reccomend plastic or a refridgerator.. after you dry them oout properly they will be dry as paper

Amanita at this time of the year???  :confused:

I live in Europe too and the Amanita season finished 5 months ago!

Anyway, I store mine dried in air tight containers with desiccant.
