Picking Time
    #4104139 - 04/27/05 09:04 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

When should I pick the mushrooms?

How about timing? Same time? Individually?

What is the procedure after you pick? Clean off? How? Seperate stem from cap? Put in fridge? Eat right away? Put immediately in dehydrator?

Can you over-dry in a dehydrator?

1. Most advise to pick right before the veil breaks, unless you want to make prints, in which case you wait until the cap flattens.

2. I find it's better to take them all off at once... I tried leaving some smaller guys behind so they could mature more, but their growth stunted and they ended up aborting on me.

3. Pick, brush off as much loose crap as you can, but don't go nuts about it... it's a lot easier to clean them off after drying.

No need to seperate stem from cap unless it's to put it in the dehydrator... in which case, I recommend beheading them and then slicing the stem in half length-wise so they dry faster.

You'll want to put them right in the dehydrator if you don't want to consume any fresh.

If you want to, you can put some in a brown paper bag in the fridge for fresh consumption. They will only last a few days, so eat very soon if this is what you want to do.

It's really a matter of preference on all the questions in the section I marked 3.

4. No, you cannot over-dry. You want them absolutely as dry as possible. When you squeeze a stem, it should break apart in your fingers like a cracker.

"do they taste better fresh or dried?"

All a matter of taste and convenience. When dried properly there is much less to ingest - less hassle - less to knock down. I believe that on the shromery forum dried would be the product of choice.

I myself don't prefer the texture of wet mushrooms. They arn't bad, but dry mushrooms go down pretty easy. I think they taste like dry oats, but i've only had a couple kinds of cubes.  :crymeariver:

Well, everyone I have seen try and comp down a fresh cubie usally gags a lot and has to stuff it litteraly down. BUT thats just IME . I couldn't wait to eat a fresh cube - then I popped one in my mouth and... well... I have never had anything that gross before. I love the fungus but I would rather eat my own vomit before trying to do that ever again.

I could never eat dry shrooms either - but after my fresh cube experiance - I can chomp them down like nothing.

I have heard that headaches and stomach pains are more frequent with juicy shrooms. Pyriel on here says that he gets super headaches from wet shrooms - but not dry.

1 shroom wet is = to 3 shrooms dry. thats an estimation... but

30gms wet = 3 gms dry usually... meaning you could take less and get more out of it fresh (if your going to eat them within a few days)

Dry, add some crushed/powderized vit. C (about .5g for every 5g of mushies is what i use)...then mix 5 or less grams of all of it into a pint of o.j, you can barely taste it...

More shroomies u add, the more it tastes like mushies.

Drink right away, letting it sit makes it taste worse and i'd imigine that the o.j's acidicy would quicky destroy (not the chemicals) the mushies tissue, it turns green after about 2-5 mintues lol
